Meet our wonderful team member, Elpida Tsirigoti! She has been working at the All4Women Community Centre since it opened. Elpida greets the women, schedules laundry appointments, and assists us in all our operations on Lesvos. Her bright smile is usually the first face that our visitors see when coming to All4Women Centre!
Elpida was an estate agent before, but wanted to give back to others when the refugee crisis started. She said that working at All4Women Centre fills her heart with happiness.
One of her favourite moments at the Centre was when a young child started coming to the centre, but was too scared to talk. He would kick and hit, but Elpida continued to love him. He came everyday with his family and by the end of the first week, he came up to Elpida with open arms wanting a hug! The change in him was evident and his mother said “thank you for bringing my son back.” Elpida attributes it to the power of love. Love can change people!
Thank you Elpida for all you do!
