Maurice Ward Group
in action for Moria

September 17, 2020

The Moria refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos burned down on 9th of September 2020, leaving 13,000 people on the street as they have nowhere to go. Human rights organizations speak of a nightmare and urge everyone to get in action.

Moria, a time bomb that was waiting to explode, has been facing difficulties for some time now as the camp accommodates 13,000 refugees, while there is actually only room for 3,000 people. On top of that, past weeks, the number of COVID-19 cases in the camp skyrocketed.

156 houses for the refugees

One of our good customers PCPM, in cooperation with the local government in Poland, have appointed Maurice Ward Group to get the job done. The main goal was to support the Greek authorities in the reorganization of refugee camps. The team got to work immediately and moved three trucks with modular homes from Better Shelter, making a delivery of 156 houses in total to the Military Base North of Athens – Army Camp “Melidis” at Avlonas, Attica region. 

“We stand in solidarity with the migrants and the Greeks. It is terrible that so many in the relief camp, where conditions were already so dramatic, have been affected by the fires. Our priority now is to provide humane housing,” said the spokesperson from PCPM.

At Maurice Ward Group our pruprose is to safely package and ship our customers’ goods and materials to serve the essential needs of communities around the world. Together we will overcome, if we unite!

The first ever ‘cargo only’ flight was recorded in November 1910 in the USA, using a Wright Model B aeroplane that flew 65 miles carrying a package of silk. The business owner used the pioneering transport more as a PR stunt to celebrate the opening of his store, with the bundle of silk cut into individual pieces and glued onto souvenir postcards.
