Lesvos Hospitality Area Gets a Fresh Look

We are always happy to see the many talents and skills of the volunteers serving alongside us come to life. Thanks to the American group of short-term volunteers from Calvary Church of Santa Ana [@calvarylife; @lesvos__calvary] we were able to use a public holiday in Greece to give our centre’s hospitality area a fresh coat of paint.

All4Aid Guest Book

Thanks to the thoughtful idea of an American volunteer, we now have our first Guest Book in our All4Aid Center in Lesvos, Greece!

The idea is that refugees can leave some words of hope and advice to one another when they are leaving the island and are transferred to mainland Greece or other European countries. 

We love when volunteers come up with new, loving ideas  to serve and encourage the women we work with, during a time in their lives when they can use every word of hope. 

In what ways can you spread hope today?

Our New Relaxation Room on Lesvos

Many of the women at our All4Aid Centre on Lesvos, Greece, have shared the difficulty of sleeping in the camp, especially with the summer heat. Inspired by this feedback, one of our volunteers suggested creating a dedicated space within the All4Aid Centre for women to relax, rest, or simply find some quiet time.

We took action! With the generous support of donations from @eurorelief, our team of volunteers and staff, we are very happy to announce the completion of our brand new Relaxation Room! This dedicated space offers a much-needed haven for women to unwind, recharge, and find some peace during a challenging time in their lives.

We believe this Relaxation Room will not only provide physical rest but also a chance for them to connect with a sense of inner calm.

New Shower for Children on Lesvos!

At All4Aid Lesvos, we strive to create a safe and comfortable environment especially for refugee women and children. Recently, we noticed a concerning trend: some children would start crying during their showers.

One possible reason for this could be the trauma they experienced while crossing the sea. Recognising this and relying on the feedback of the refugee women who use our shower facilities each day, we decided to take action.

Previously, our showers had only one option: a high-mounted head with a high pressure water flow. Last week, as a test,  we added a pull out shower head to one of our shower rooms. This new option allows for a gentler water flow, probably making showers less overwhelming for children.

We hope this small change makes a big difference, turning shower time into a calmer and more positive experience for the children.

New Look and New Services at the All4Aid Centre on Lesvos!

We have been busy making improvements to better serve refugees at our All4Aid Centre in Lesvos, Greece! Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to:

Inspired by a volunteer’s suggestion, we created a dedicated space for women to relax, nap, or find some quiet time. We hope this provides not just physical rest but also a chance to connect with inner peace.

Thanks to another thoughtful volunteer, we now have a Guest Book where refugees can leave messages of hope and encouragement for each other as they move on from Lesvos.

We’ve installed a new pull out shower head in our Women & Girls Shower Room to make showering easier and more enjoyable for the children.

And we have brightened up the hospitality area with a fresh coat of paint thanks to an American group of volunteers from Calvary Church of Santa Ana [@calvarylife; @lesvos__calvary] that are currently serving with us.

We’re so grateful for our volunteers’ ideas and compassionate spirit that allow us to better serve refugees during this challenging time.

Building a Safe Space for Learning

We’re thrilled to unveil a brand new classroom at the All4Aid Centre in Cyprus, which will be dedicated to our upcoming English language classes! This classroom provides a safe and supportive environment where participants can relax, learn and connect with others. Our programme is designed to develop communication and understanding skills, as fluency in English unlocks a world of possibilities. By the end of the program, we hope our participants will feel confident and accomplished navigating everyday tasks and paperwork.

Expanding Our Reach to Better Serve Refugees

At All4Aid, we are constantly striving to find new ways to  better serve the needs of the refugee communities we serve. Thanks to generous donations from supporters like you, we’ve been able to make significant progress in recent months!

We’re excited to share that we have been repurposing some  rooms in our All4Aid Center in Cyprus. This includes a computer room, an English language classroom, and a laundry room with a high-capacity washer and dryer as well as a newly built shelving unit.

Stay tuned for more updates on our upcoming programmes and initiatives!

Welcoming Orphans into our House of Grace Bucharest

For over two years, All4Aid’s House of Grace in Bucharest, Romania, has been hosting different groups of Ukrainian refugees escaping the war. After so much use, we thought now was a good time to conduct some maintenance, repairs and renovations at the house, in order to keep it as a beautiful and welcoming place. 

This week many hands are busy working at the house. Some of the difficult jobs (e.g.: repairing leaks and plastering) are being done by local professional contractors we hired. Some other easier jobs (e.g.: cleaning and painting) are being done by All4Aid volunteers.

The goal is to have the house ready by next week, when we will be receiving a new group of orphan children from Ukraine who will be staying at the House of Grace. Pray with us that this group of children will be able to arrive safely in Bucharest and please, partner with us financially so that we can continue this very important work!

Heartfelt Thanks to a Generous Donor

We are incredibly touched to learn of a recent bequest left to All4Aid this past month. A kind individual who served with us as a short-term volunteer, in his final wishes, left a percentage of his estate to support our work with and alongside refugees.

This generous gift will have a lasting impact on the lives of those we serve. It will help us to continue providing vital services, such as our FoodBank Programme, our workshops and support groups to equip refugees with valuable skills.

We are deeply grateful for this thoughtful contribution. It is a testament to the compassion and generosity that exists in the world. 

What about you? Have you ever thought about the legacy you want to leave when you are gone? 

Creating or amending a will that names All4Aid (and/or other organisations) as a beneficiary could be a great way, even in death, to make a statement and reaffirm your passion for the causes you cared about in life – regardless of the amount!

There are several ways to make a provision for All4Aid in your will so that it meets both the requirements for a legally valid bequest and accurately documents your wishes.  We encourage you to consult your lawyer for specific requirements in your country.
