We have been watching the heartbreaking news pouring out of Europe and Syria with a sense of helplessness. It is moments like these, where we feel there is little we can do, that we absolutely must figure out a way to do something.
CEO, Katalina Mayorga, will be heading to Lesvos, Greece in early March with a small group of friends to volunteer on the North Coast of the island. Lesvos is the geographical point where thousands of refugees are arriving daily from Syria. As volunteers, they will be providing refugees arriving by boat dry clothes and shoes, rain ponchos, sleeping bags, food, medical help.
While organizing the coordination and logistics of the trip, we realized this would be an important opportunity to extend to our #elcaminotravel community, so we are doing just that.
This is NOT an El Camino Trip.
March 18th to March 27th, 2016.
