It is with immense hesitation that I sign off from my last shift on the shores of Skala. This afternoon I drive to Mytilene to spend a week at Moria (the registration camp) and Pikpa (a camp for children and other vulnerable refugees). I hold dear the spectacular people, from all walks of life, I've met here, and I am eternally grateful to have experienced glimmers of hope, however fleeting, among the devastating and cruel reality for the refugees who flee to these shores from their war-torn homelands. It has been a privilege to welcome them to dry land, and experience their extraordinary courage, resilience, perseverance and kindness.  
Stay safe, all. <3
