Hope

Attika is an essential part of the support services and value system on Lesvos and beyond serving over 8,000 Asylum Seekers, 25 NGO’s and the local Greek community. The co-founder of Attika, Aris Vlachopoulos, having worked overseas since 2006 returned to his native Lesvos in 2014. As the refugee crisis unfolded before his eyes, he became a first responder, assisting arriving asylum seekers on the north shore. When it became clear that clothing, hygiene and shelter were critical unmet needs of the growing population of displaced people, side by side with committed friends, Attika Warehouse was set up in late 2015. Aris continues to run the warehouse today and has seen this small seed grow into one of the two largest aid warehouses in Greece distributing in bulk to the other NGO’s, directly to arriving refugees, to the residents of Moria, Kara Tepe, Vathy and Vial camps, to those who become patients and expectant mothers in the local hospital and to the local community in need. Attika remains the only warehouse open to everyone in need of human support
