Amphibious Trilogies @ Samos Volunteers

High stakes

Throughout April 2017 a team from Amphibious Trilogies will work with Samos Volunteers, an independent group who mainly organise activities for refugee shelters on the Greek Island of Samos, close to Turkey. We have been there once before, in August 2016. We anticipate a changed situation. We are wary. We are glad that our skills may be of some help.
