Hands On Global is on the move! A team is headed to Texas and Mexico Jan 26 thru Feb 7. Two local doctors have closed their offices and have donated a TON of really useful medical supplies. We have loaded up on supplies for our Texas team and sent several boxes to PAUL JAQUAY who is heading to Nogales in January.
AND we are RETURNING TO GREECE – a full team. We are heading to Samos Island that now houses thousands of refugees without basic needs. One of our team members who went on a preliminary trip to Samos described it as this – “Moria (known to be the WORST refugee camp on the planet) is like a bad Holiday Inn and Samos camp is like a really BAD CAMPING TRIP.” Those of you who followed our posts from Moria know it was not even close to a Holiday Inn, so we are preparing for a difficult medical camp. But the need is so great. Winter has descended on these islands and it is raining and snowing with people sheltering under tarps with no heat or electricity.
So FEBRUARY 2 : SAVE THE DATE! We are doing a DINNER FOR THE DISPLACED at Plymouth Congregational Church.
Details to follow. We will again cook delicious Middle Eastern soups, salads, breads and a few surprise recipes picked up from our Iraqi and Palestinian friends. Please join us. Food for Medicines. The money raised is for medical supplies ~ mostly medicines.
