Community Testimonials

Our community’s refugees have shared powerful testimonials that shed light on their experiences and resilience. Through their stories, we gain a deeper understanding of the hardships endured, the sacrifices made, and the dreams pursued by these individuals forced to flee their homes. These stories serve as a reminder of the importance of compassion, empathy, and support as we work together to create inclusive and welcoming spaces for refugees to thrive and fulfil their potential.


I am writing this email to appreciate and thank all Elpida Home staff members who have been great supporters of mine and my family over the last nine months, from the time of the evacuation to our resettlement in Canada.

Our resettlement would not have been possible without your consistent support. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me in Greece where I discovered how amazing and welcoming the Greek people are. I will remember you all for the rest of my life.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Greek government and the amazing people of Greece for their warm welcome during our stay. We have left Greece with excellent memories and have learnt a lot about the great Greek culture.”

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work that you and the entire Elpida Home team did for me and my family while we were in Greece, special thanks for your kindness. I wish success and victory for you and your friends.
