[Lesvos and the Aegean Sea]

A banner map in 5 languages giving local information for refugees arriving on the Greek island of Lesvos, by Internews. The banner was made as one low-tech way to meet basic information needs of people when they first arrived on the island, often disoriented. The English text reads “Welcome to the Greek island Lesvos. You must register with the authorities first on the other side of the island. By bus takes about 90 minutes. Walking takes two days. Please stay with your traveling group, and don’t get into separate vehicles. Keep your luggage with you at all times. Beware of over-pricing. Do not sleep or rest on the roads.”
