Happy LHI Anniversary, Iona!

We want to wish Iona a super Happy LHI anniversary! Iona (23, from England) has been the Female-Friendly Space program manager at the LHI's Refugee Center in Serres, Greece for an entire year. She not only runs the program but also built it up from scratch.

What is the Female-Friendly Space that she runs so well? It is a safe, healing space reserved just for women (ages 13+), where they can relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, spend time with one another, and take part in several healing activities. Iona and her team host daily activities, such as crafts, games, use of sewing machines, films, beauty days, and others.

We're so grateful for Iona's dedication, expertise, sense of humor, thorough understanding of Brexit politics (and anything Harry Potter), and grounding presence for the hundreds of women that have enjoyed the FFS over the last year.
