Moria Fire: More Than Ever, Europe Must Protect, says German Archbishop

The Archbishop of Hamburg and ICMC Governing Committee member Stefan Hesse called the fire that destroyed Moria refugee camp in Greece a “foretold catastrophe.” NGOs have denounced the camp’s dangerous conditions for years. Archbishop Hesse says Europe must find the political will to welcome people seeking protection in a humane manner.


ICMC provides assistance and protection to vulnerable people on the move and advocates for sustainable solutions for refugees and migrants.
