Early this year, I took a sabbatical from work after 15 years, to travel. Although I have been to Greece earlier and come to love everything about it, this time Greece warmed my heart a little more by the way it has opened its arms to refugees of one of the largest humanitarian crises, despite it’s own ongoing economic crunch. The ongoing refugee crisis has been making me very uneasy for a while now.
Since the middle of June, A Drop in the Ocean has had a team of 5 volunteers, working hard in the new refugee camp situated at Cape Sounio in the southern part of the Attic Peninsula at the southern tip of Greece mainland.
Here, our coordinator Gary Rolston shares his experiences of the first week of work (June 21).
