Fire at Lesbos refugee camp – the families left homeless again

Earlier this month the largest refugee camp in Europe on the island of Lesbos burnt to the ground – leaving more than 12,000 people homeless.

The notoriously overcrowded Moria camp was known for its unsanitary conditions with some asylum seekers and refugees stuck there for months.

Now a new temporary camp has been built on the Greek island and the European Union has pledged to make the plight of refugees easier.
