Thousands of men, women and children who have fled war and misery arrive at the Lesbos refugee camp in Greece with the hope of a new beginning, but here they discover only more suffering. The Pope John XXIII Community has chosen to be in Lesbos to share the drama of this humanity, to give a voice to these unheard people. The presence of the Community's volunteers and of Operazione Colomba (the Community's non-violent peace corps) and the reception in the family house in Athens is indispensable: help us to be present alongside the men, women and children who are suffering in desperate silence. They need us now.
