After a year of restrictions and fear, the Home for All restaurant is welcoming people again! And it is full again! There is no shortage of people eager to spend a few moments here. “Home for All” is an extraordinary place created by Katerina and Nikos, a couple of Greek restaurateurs who 6 years ago left everything behind to feed and restore dignity to the people stranded on the beaches of Lesbos. They created a home for the inhabitants of the largest refugee camp in Europe, where they can forget, at least for a while, the hardships of everyday life.
The first people to sit down at the tables on the restaurant terrace were special guests. These were 30 volunteers, residents of the camp, who, although they themselves live in difficult conditions and are living in isolation, not knowing what the future holds for them, are ready every day to help their fellow travellers, helping us to provide the most vulnerable with hot meals and basic necessities.
During the long months of restrictions, Home for All was not able to receive visitors, although it worked at full capacity from morning to night, serving several hundred hot meals a day and organising supplies for the inhabitants of Moria 2.0. The time has finally come to thank these young people. We also have you to thank! The fact that we are reaching more than 2000 people a week with help is also your service! You restore faith in humanity to thousands of residents of the camp in Lesbos!
In addition to sharing a meal and providing essential goods, we always have a kind word and a smile for everyone, with which we show that although they have many enemies in this world, here they also have friends.
We visit everyone in their tent. We do not run distribution points, we do not make people stand in the heat and cold in long queues to collect their food rations.
We will be there in a few days. The paediatrician and I are going on another mission. Now, apart from feeding the children, we will also provide them with medical treatment. If you would like to take part in this extraordinary project, please visit GoodWorks 24/7 today and donate at least a hot meal.
