Then not to Moldova
We had already contacted OM in early 2020 about a longer deployment. The plan was to go to Moldova again in the summer, this time so that everyone could get to know each other and we could talk together about a possible assignment.
Due to this small virus with big effects, Moldova closed the borders completely until autumn – an operation was thus impossible. A short time later we saw the call that they are desperate for helpers in Lesbos. A not-quite-serious “Hey honey, let’s go there” turned into a quick “can families come too?” – E-mail. And within a few weeks, five of us were on a plane to Greece.
What we experienced during this time, we have summarized in a Youtube series. Have fun watching.
