‘Life is hell in Camp Moria’, says Ro-La, a young woman from Syria. Ro-La fled for safety and eventually ended up in Camp Moria. ‘By a long way, not enough toilets and showers for some five thousand people and often no water. So if you do get the chance to shower, you come out filthier than you go in’
Pieter, Dinne and Liesbeth, initiators of the ‘ShowerPower’ foundation, have all three had the experience of working in refugee camps.
Pieter sums up ‘The situation in camp Moria is dramatic so, if the government can’t do anything, we will do it: with ShowerPower‘.
SHOWERS FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN
The harrowing circumstances in camp Moria and the neighbouring Olive Grove were the motive to found ShowerPower. ShowerPower provides warm and clean showers in a cosy home environment.
It is a place where women and children can feel safe and can take a break from the horrific camp life. Hot tea, fresh fruit and soup are served and there is enough room for the children to play.
Since the start of the project in February 2018, close to 20000 women and children have had a hot shower.
Nobody can help everybody, but everybody can help somebody!
