This book is a diary of Charmaine Craig's volunteer work on a Greek Island of Kos. During her second trip to Turkey, she saw that Istanbul transformed into a city of beggars, Syrian refugees were everywhere on the streets, and in such a poor condition. That was the reason for the decision to become a volunteer in the first place.
Full of heartbreaking scenes and details, the book is written in a very easy to perceive language which appeals to every human heart. Feelings of compassion, sorrow and sometimes helplessness constantly filled my heart as well as pride and dignity for those, who, at their hardest times, kept on helping others. The scenes of children dying every day, newborn baby nearly dying at sea, but fortunately rescued - these and other stories just change your life completely and forever. The book also contains links to photo and video albums, which are priceless! The main idea of the book is clear and exact: the refugees are treated by authorities and governments in the most disgusting way and by ignoring it- we are all guilty!
I truly think this book has powers to encourage people to act! This is a must-read for everyone!
And at the end of this book, there is a really good step by step description to get a volunteer by your own or to join other volunteers.
I have a lot of respect what Charmaine Craig had done.
