"We were so scared, we thought our lives were over. Everybody collected what they could and ran quickly to the forest. We spent the night there frightened without food or water״ says Mahboobhe, a 12-year-old Afghan refugee.

On the night of September 8, 2020, a fire broke out in Moria, the largest refugee camp located on the Greek island of Lesbos.
