Thanks for everything Mona

“This experience makes me really understand better the migrants’ crisis situation and realize that it is possible to help.”

The down side of having such brilliant volunteers is having to say goodbye to them. Mona was our very first, here since we opened, and the time that she spent here really helped to get the showers running the way that they are now. We’ll miss you…

“I came from France as the first volunteer of Becky’s Bathhouse in the beginning of 2019 and it was an amazing human experience! I am so glad to have had the opportunity to see such a big growth and evolution in the organization during my stay. Each week we had built new things in the warehouse and welcomed new people in the team.

“During my time there, we used to support two families each day. Meeting these people from Moria camp was for me the most interesting part of my stay. You share a very privileging time with these people in difficulty, and do your best to make them relax and enjoy themselves in Becky’s Bathhouse. This experience makes me really understand better the migrants’ crisis situation and realize that it is possible to help.

“We were working in the warehouse during the week and have free time on the weekend to enjoy the island: beaches, restaurants, bars… There is a very big community of volunteers on the island so you can easily meet people. After one month and half there, I keep very nice memories about the work and the people in the organization, but also the very easy lifestyle on Lesvos Island. I am so grateful to all the girls with whom I shared this experience!”
