Hollywood goes to Greek refugee camp

Author: Emma Wallis | infomigrants | 25 March 2019

The Hollywood actress Katie Holmes and her daughter were on the Greek island of Lesbos last week working with refugees in the Moria refugee camp. Both Katie Holmes and the organization she was working with, (New York based) Artolution, posted photos on Instagram about the experience.

In January this year, the British based charity Oxfam branded conditions in Moria refugee camp on the island of Lesbos “inhumane.” Oxfam was reported saying in the Guardian newspaper that women in the camp had taken to wearing diapers at night “for fear of leaving their tents to go to the toilet.” Another charity, Médecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors without borders, MSF) called it “the worst refugee camp on earth” in August 2018.
