BLINDSPOTS focuses on places of humanitarian crisis that receive too little public attention. We bring Europe’s “blind spots” into the focal point of social discourse, question political strategies for action and strengthen existing support structures through joint projects and gathering of donations. Through close cooperation with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and people on the ground, we seek to improve relief distribution on Europe’s refugee routes.
WE ARE CURRENTLY ACTIVE IN TWO REGIONS:
Bosnia and Herzegovina, where growing numbers of refugees on the Balkan route are congregated and prevented from the continuation of their journey by violent “push-backs” carried out by EU border police. Local solidarity has been replaced by a growing animosity and violence towards the incoming migrants and hope of humanitarian support from the European Union has dissipated.
Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, which suffered a massive explosion on August 4th, 2020 that shook the city to its foundation. Port area of the city that was most affected by the blast is also home to a population that is largely made up of refugees from surrounding regions – Syria among them.
