An Emotional Return to Camp Moria
5 years ago, volleyball couple Ehsan and Sheida their inflatable boat from Turkey to Lesbos sank with 45 passengers on board. Three of them didn't make it. Now, being back at the 'beach' where they were stranded, brought back all the difficult moments they encountered.
Ehsan and Sheida returned to Lesbos to face these horrible memories by sharing them. Together with our LKTBF Fingerprints, we are shooting a documentary about their emotional and inspiring journey as refugees. An intense story that should be shared all over the world inspiring hope for refugees in hopeless positions.
To bravely start on day 1, Ehsan and Sheida accepted an invitation to go on a small boat trip on that same ocean, following a visit to the old camp Moria. The former refugee camp has been destroyed by fire, releasing impressive moments.
Anecdotes from Ehsan and Sheida about their stay in camp Moria were beyond imagination. The personal belongings that were left between the remains made it even more tangible.
We are so thankful for these two beautiful persons to share their stories with us. During our stay in Lesbos, Ehsan and Sheida will explain to us how #volleyball has changed their lives forever while visiting multiple sights, meeting with other refugees, and visiting our volleyball for refugees project on the island.
