Everything started in October
Everything started on 24th of October. In a very sunny day my plane landed in an amazing city, Thessaloniki. I was received with bright smiles and warming welcome greetings. Even if I had a hard time before coming, with a lot of things happening, I felt that here I was about to meet great people.
In the next several days, I had the chance to see how beautiful is the city, to meet many new people and to be discover great food and some habits that Greek people have, like addition for coffee.
Then, I discovered the real dimension of Arsis. I discovered that I was going to work with children that due to their life were already aware about the meaning of real difficulties. I discovered that Arsis is a big organization that try hard to provide all the necessary support to children and youth that are found in difficult situations. I found out that all the efforts can be slower when they do not benefit from the authorities’ help. I found out that the people can be supportive in their cause and that a united community can be very powerful.
And many more were coming in the next month…
