Dear friends, I was in Lesvos for 1 week driving for Marhacar as the sole driver that week (they normally have 3 shifts with 2 drivers per shift).. It was rewarding, and I got to see many sides of the island. It was also sad in the sense that Better Days for MOria and many other organizations were dismantling their operations on the island. I cut my Lesvos time short and moved to Idomeni on the mainland by the Macedonian border. This second part of my volunteering was more what I had initailly signed up for, plenty of work directly with refugees, I worked in a baby hammam bathing 80 babies a day wiht Bomberos in Accion and also with Nurture Project at Eko gas station. And I helped out the Lighthouse with crowd managemetn by food distribution and played with adorable children.
I admire the many selfless great volunteers I met and eoncourage anyone hesitating to go and help where needed. Thank you for the Lesvos google document contianing tons of valuable information.
