Moria

Moria Camp is the registration camp of Lesvos. Upon arrival each person must go here to register and from here, the institutions responsible for the asylum procedure decide to which shelter or camp the person is transferred.

Moria is 7 km away from Kara Tepe. It is located in a former detention center, has space for 2000 people, but but accommodates many more. The facilities are not as desired, which sometimes leads to understandably tense situations.

BWC volunteers are only allowed to enter Moria under the supervision of our coordinator.
