It’s an exciting week at the All4Aid Women’s Centre here on Lesvos! We are putting the final touches on our “shop” and are looking forward to reopening later this week! While this space does not act as a shop in the strictest sense of the term, it is our way of freely distributing clothing and personal hygiene items in a manner that respects the dignity and individuality of each person.
Women and girls who reside at Mavrovouni Camp are allowed to come into the space and take their time looking through items which for the most part are female-specific. They can choose a certain number of items based on the number of women or girls in their family. As they leave, they already receive an invitation to come back for their next shopping experience in a few weeks!
