Super Grandma :)

on

We spent most evenings at the port distributing clothing, jackets, kit to refugees boarding the boat to Athens.
3 of us were approached discreetly by an elderly Greek lady holding a small plastic bag.
She smiled and generously offered us some biscuits. When we kindly said to her we were ok she insisted. She thought we were refugees and did not realised we were volunteers until her husband told her in Greek. We all laughed and had a good moment.
This woman was such an inspiration. She came to the port and really wanted to contribute and help with the little she had.
Unfortunately we forgot to take a snap with this lovely couple. Their generosity and kindness will forever live in our memories.
