Just an update from the last post. I failed to get any wheel chairs to Piraeus. Nice idea, and I did try, but I didn’t succeed.
On another note, and on the subject of cleaning beaches, employing ‘Refugees’, and also attempting to get a much better deal for genuine ‘Refugees’ stuck in Turkey, Greece and the Balkans, I booked a cheap ticket to Izmir in Turkey last week. (£75 seven day return).
I can clean a few Turkish beaches. (Done that before). I can talk with some of the Refugees there. (Done that before but not in Turkey). I can see if any of them are interested in a potential project to clean any of Turkey/Greece’s beaches-in return for payment and much better living conditions-and in turn help clean up the Mediterranean of plastic and trash. Win/Win?
Refugees in Calais like the idea. I paid ‘one’ guy to help me clean there. One hours work. 20 euros pay.
Will update. All the best, Simon.
