Chiara moved to Samos in February 2020 to teach English and German at Banana House from Action for Education. When Banana House had to close due to the Covid-19 measures, she moved on to Med’EqualiTeam to help out with translations and crowd management.
Now that all community centres are slowly opening up again, she will divide her time between teaching, translating and taking over admin tasks.
Before coming to Samos Chiara was living in Berlin, running a translation agency and volunteering at an emergency shelter for refugees.
Since 2016, HAN has provided more than 80 tons emergency supplies like blankets, food and medicine, mostly donated by our partners and supported more than ten Heroes in Thessaloniki, Samos, Patras, Calais and Bosnia amongst others. HAN spends 100% of funds on its goals and are matched 50-100 fold in value (8 mio Euro’s) by donations in kind and contributions by other NGO’s.
