My story

[p]I'm here in Katsikas, Northern Greece, volunteering in a camp supported by Refugee Support Europe. It's a grass roots organisation that receives no financial aid from the Greek Government nor any other foreign aid.[/p][p]The families and individuals who live here have fled wars in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and many other parts of the world and would literally starve without the presence and dedication of Refugee Support. It provides their only access to food, activities for the children and language classes, all carried out by volunteers.[/p][p]Despite their uncertain future, not legally able to work and build a new life, living in tiny metal boxes, the people here are gracious, friendly and greet volunteers with a generous smile. [/p][p]They are fully dependent on the love, care and donations that come from people around the world that keep Refugee Support afloat. [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
