Greece is in flames! For several days now, fires have been consuming the forests on the island of Lesbos, threatening further villages. And although at the moment the flames seem to be under control, the situation is still serious.
Can you guess who is helping the firefighters? You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Katerina and Nikos, along with their entire team of volunteers, are, as usual, right where they need to be. Six years ago they were close to the terrified people who were emerging from the icy water on the Greek beaches, fleeing war and danger. For the past years, they have been feeding the residents of Europe’s largest refugee camp – mostly women, children and senior citizens. They have also been helping the Greek people by responding to every sign of poverty.
Today, they are not only supporting the firefighters battling the gigantic flames, but are also on the ground with them. They are bringing them water and meals so that they can hold back the fire for as long as possible. If you can – send them a few words of support or send the news out into the world that they are truly the humble heroes of this fight!
