Please read this important message from the Bishop and Council of Advice on the devastating fires at the Moira Refugee Camp in Lesbos, Greece. We call on governments across Europe to attend quickly and with seriousness of purpose to the plight of the most vulnerable in our midst. We already work with and support EuroRelief, and sent 6 boxes with clothing for the residents of Moria just two days ago. We will also be writing to our MP and to the German government calling on them to help and allow the refugees from Lesbos into Germany: almost all German States have offered space.
