Our first action : with METAdrasi in Greece
24 November - 1 December 2018
This mission is important to us as it marks the beginning of our project...
METAdrasi is the first association we supported. It is an association whose mission is to facilitate the reception and integration of refugees and migrants in Greece. Their teams have to deal everyday with an immense amount of stress and pressure, to achieve, overcome and exceed the ongoing and never ending needs for helping these people in need during their arrival in Greece.
In less than a week, we conducted 63 individual hypnosis sessions and 12 hours of workshops on stress management for their teachers, coordinators, interpreters, program managers, administrative and support staff. We realized they often silence or undermine their needs because they think they are not as worthy as those of the refugees...That makes them give and give without taking time to recharge their batteries and just listen too their own personal needs.
During our mission, we visited three refugees' camps and four different locations to understand the context and to meet the people. We met many incredible people who really opened their heart, shared their personal fears and stories with us. We saw so many smiling faces, so many tears and so much courage during the whole stay.
We take care of those who take care!
