dS De Standaard, Usage

Mar 25, 2020
As you do in these days of home confinement i undertook my monthly check of the internet to see if i could find any of my images used. I came across this image used in the Belgium Newspaper dS De Standaard from my time in Lesbos. Have attached my intro paragraph to my story on the organisation Pikpa; PIKPA IS THE NAME of an old social welfare holiday camp for children established in 1938, situated a few hundred yards from the Aegean Sea in Lesbos, Greece. The site had long been closed when, in September 2012, a loose group of individuals and local NGOs established a self-help network, initially perceived as an antidote to the social and economic devastation in Greece after the 2009 banking collapse. They called their group “The Village of Altogether”.
Driven by its ethos of solidarity and mutual support for all people, the group approached the mayor of Mytilini—the island’s biggest town— and asked that PIKPA be used as a facility to accommodate the refugees drawn to Greek shores from war-torn countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and others.
The Village of Altogether now runs
4 | 12•2015
this camp as a haven and hospitality centre under the principle that all people should be treated with dignity. The autonomous group lacks any national or European funding. It has over a hundred affiliated members on Lesbos, but an active core of around just ten to 15 people.
They provide accommodation for the most vulnerable refugees; the disabled, injured, elderly, pregnant women, single women with children and family groups with very young infants are, if possible, referred to PIKPA. Volunteers offer food, clothes, hygienic facilities, medical help and legal counselling. Most importantly, they offer a warm and open welcome. #refugees #lesbos #lesvos #pikpa #humanaity #photojournalism #editorial #greece
