meet the hellenic rescue team

The Hellenic Rescue Team volunteers come from all walks of life on the island of Lesvos. Here we meet a few of them…


“My name is Lefki, and I’m 21 years old. I’m a student at the University of the Aegean here in Lesvos, and I’m also a volunteer for HRT for about four years.

I joined HRT because of some incidents that happened to my mother, and I couldn’t help her. After these incidents, I decided to learn the first aid, and be able to help the people that I love, and generally everyone in an emergency.

I think Hellenic Rescue Team will become bigger in the next few years, and I hope more people will join our team and train to save lives.”
