Murtaza, a refugee from Afghanistan, was so grateful to Katerina and Nikos for their hospitality at Home for All that he turned one of the restaurant tables into a beautiful painting of a winter landscape. We want you to take this work of art home for Christmas this year!
Every day, The Good Factory, together with the local restaurant Home for All, fights for the dignity of refugees in a camp on the Greek island of Lesbos. We provide the most vulnerable people with warm, well-balanced meals, provide first aid materials and send medical missions to the youngest. In the fight for a dignified life for the refugees, we are very much concerned with children and young people. So many of them know no other life than inside the camp boundaries. For them, we want to restore a semblance of normality, to convince them that in addition to enemies, they also have friends in this world.
We have seen more than once how important it is to create a space for children and young people where they can take a break from the overwhelming reality of camp. We invite them to Home for All for cooking, music and painting workshops. We do everything we can to make sure that in addition to all the evil that they have been experiencing for months, they also experience good, let their creativity run free, and remember their childhood and their dreams. Murtaza left his drawing on the table top to say “thank you for your hospitality”.
By purchasing this bauble, you are helping us to reach out to those most in need and to welcome them at the Christmas table.
