THIS PLACE IS REAL.
Moria (Greek: Μόρια – Mória) refugee camp is the biggest refugee camp in Europe. (UNHCR) Moria is a refugee camp located outside Moria village near Mytilene. Enclosed with barbed wire and a chain-link fence, the camp serves as a European Union receiving center or “hotspot”. It is described by Human Rights Watch as an open air prison. (Human Rights Watch)(Wikipedia 11th of April 2020)
The camp was built to accommodate around 3000 people, however there are now over 20000 people living in the camp. Because of overcrowding, the camp has expanded into a nearby olive grove, where the living quarters are makeshift, typically made out of tarps. (Human Rights Watch). (…) Every month, hundreds of refugees and migrants cross the Mediterranean sea and land in Moria. (Aegean Boat Report).
