My name is O. I am a Cameroonian woman, 43 years old, mother of three children and one grandson. I live in Lesbos (Moria Camp) since two months and ten days. I live alone in Section C since my arrival in Greece.
The living standards here are very unfavorable. Cats meow all night long, and with 21 women living in one container, it is very hard to sleep at night because of the heat and constant noises.
The police sometimes come during the day or night to calm erupting fights. Patient care and
management is very slow, and the food for us Africans is very bad. Thankfully, we receive 90€ to be able to feed ourselves, as well as two bottles of water per person. Sometimes, we have to purchase medicine and medical examinations ourselves. Without the help of several NGOs, there would be deaths.
As soon as you enter the camp, you can see all the human waste dumped on the road: imagine the flies and smells with the heat. Medical examinations are not done upon arrival at the camp: it is only after several months that we find out some people among us are contagious.
My wish would be to live in the Netherlands, due to the love you have towards migrants. I was a Sterilization Specialist back in my country, and would love to have the same job if given the opportunity.
I would also want if possible to undergo training in order to take care of the elderly, if I am not deported to Turkey.
