Day 1

Day one: we have arrived to Greece. We are scared and anxious. It has only been one month since the day we really talked about coming here. After a full day watching the news about the refugee crisis in Europe, we felt powerless and had to act upon our desire to help. We were in the "perfect" situation. No job, no house, no commitments. We decided to contact a few organisations and see where that would lead. 
We received a tip regarding one organisation called Doctors of the World. We got in touch. Several emails and two weeks after, we receive the green light. We had been chosen for a mission in the island of Lesvos, Greece. Now was the time to decide whether to go or not. We were in Cambodia at this point. Our head was a mess. What do we do now? We said yes. 
And here we are.
