Greek Couple Are Everyday Heroes To Refugees

"Our message is that we should embrace refugees, all together."

Maria and Michalis have opened their hearts and kitchen, feeding hot meals to 50 refugees a day on Samos, Greece.

Since 2007, Greece has been challenged by the arrival of a large number of refugees and migrants, but in 2015 sea arrivals escalated to an emergency. On the island of Lesvos alone, numbers topped 500,000 last year. In October 2015, arrivals peaked at more than 10,000 per day, as conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq continued to uproot people from their homes.
