Shop Reopening!

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!

World Refugee Day 2021

“We want a safe place for our families and education for our children. Refugees want just this, nothing more.”
“Why are people scared of refugees? Do you know? I think every human wants a good place for their life, just this. I am human, like you.”
“The big and powerful people they don’t see. They don’t understand us.”
This week, leading up to World Refugee Day 2021, we opened up a conversation with those in our community here on Lesvos to hear what it is that they would like people to know on this day. While their statements above speak for themselves, we as All4Aid reaffirm our commitment to working with displaced people around the world. We see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.
