stratis valamios

i think people should see a human being as a human being

we are a village of 100 people

everyone helped

people have been coming here for 20 yrs

the days.. 40 to 50 boats .. all day .. that’s what we did

in 2009 – i would take one and another one would drown next to me

there isn’t something special that makes you help.. you see people in need.. there is nothing else you can do

i think it’s a human thing
