"Going to Greece has changed my life in ways I couldn’t imagine. It’s given me a different perspective on life. I went there not knowing what to expect and left with so much. Seeing what all the refugees in camp have to live with and hearing what all they have lost, yet how much they can still give and have to live for. It’s amazing. I met some of the most kind hearted, giving, caring people in camp. I left my heart there and already made plans to return."

DK

"I went over to Greece pretty sheltered about the refugee crisis and not really having any idea what I was getting myself into or how bad things really are for the refugees. First crossing over the dangerous water only to wind up in a camp with way less than ideal living situations. As staff it seemed like we were always saying no and often had nothing to give, but loving and caring for each situation and occasionally actually being able to give what was being asked for was so rewarding."
