The Amber Garden - Chios, Greece

Words from Helena McGinty and Kate McIvor from our partners, The Hero Centre - Chios

On Monday the guys at The Hero Centre - Chios asked where does all the money come from to keep the centre going. I explained that a lot of lovely people from all over the world care about them and have donated some money to help.

The money for our cool projects like laptops, soft furnishings to make the place cosy, and our awesome outdoor space for games, drying washing and movie night is all thanks to Amber at Donate4Refugees. This lady has put her trust in us before we even had a property. It wouldn't be The Hero Centre that the guys love without her generosity and support.

So we created the "Amber Garden". Some lovingly painted rocks and flowers around a beautiful gem.

Thank you from every single person at the centre, you are a legend in Chios.

These are the antiques of Heroes Center😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

I’m in tears! That’s the most stunning thing anyone has EVER done for me! I can’t believe that in a little corner of Chios I have this gorgeous tribute. No words, only LOVE!!!!!!! πŸ˜πŸ˜˜β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œβ£οΈπŸ’•πŸ’“πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’˜πŸ’–πŸ’

What a wonderful gesture! Well done lads and well done Amber, you can see what we all see, what a fantastic place the hero centre is, how vital it has become to the beautiful men who attend there, who have made it their safe haven in a world that has lost all meaning and who now have a place to go to in which to restore their dignity and self worth. Bravo πŸ‘ all
