“My name is Kostas, and I am 35 years old. I am in the military, and also a volunteer with the Hellenic Rescue Team in Lesvos. I’ve been a volunteer for the last eight years.

I joined HRT because I liked the idea of helping other people. My biggest achievement on the team is rescuing people. My first rescue was a refugee rescue during the crisis.

I think we’ll make progress in the next five years. We want more people to join and train with us.”
