At All4Aid, we follow a principle of working WITH displaced people, not just FOR them. So, it was our privilege to welcome back some of our community volunteers last week. These are residents of the Mavrovouni Camp on Lesvos who serve with us as translators, assistant teachers, shower operators, laundry operators, seamstresses, and various other roles.
It was really great to be able to spend some time with them, show them our new centre, and talk about the ways we will work together in this new space going forward. Among the community volunteers that we welcomed back were some of our very talented seamstresses who have now resumed working on sewing masks for the Mavrovouni camp residents.
We are very grateful for all that we can do together, while still following all sanitary precautions and COVID-19 related restrictions!
