Many many thanks to our wonderful friends and customers for making our first year in business such a success….
We are happy to share that Arkesseia was able to make a donation to “Lesvos Solidarity” to support the work they are doing on the island of Lesvos, Greece to aid refugees entering Europe through the island.
Lesvos Solidarity (ex Pikpa camp) is an open refugee camp . It is a self-organized, autonomous space run by volunteers and is built on the principle of solidarity. Pikpa opened four years ago and is now a growing and evolving camp in response to the dynamic nature of the refugee crisis on the island. The refugees who stay at the camp are some of the most vulnerable: disabled, sick, pregnant and the families of victims of shipwrecks. They provide food, clothes, hygiene kits and medical assistance. They also organize activities for children, language classes and social support.
Additional information about the camp and how to help can be found at www.lesvossolidarity.org.
