Eric, Philippa & Our Daughter Ej
Originally from the UK we moved to the island of Lesvos Greece in 2000, and live in an area called Eftalou. Eric is an artist a painter and sculptor. The sculptures and other items he creates are handmade from local olive wood.

Ej is also a talented artist, a musician singer song writer who also loves photography to paint sculpt, painting and sculpture. Since early 2015, we have been rescuing and providing aid to refugees arriving on the shores of north coast of Lesvos. In the beginning it was just the three of us doing the best we could to help, however later in 2015 we had volunteers from all around the world arrive to help us. They estimate that in 2015/2016 600000 refugee status arrived on the northern shores of Lesvos, Although the mass numbers of arrivals have dropped, boats are still arriving and we continue to help.
