LDS Woman Runs Refugee Camp in Greece, Finds Unique Ways to "Beautify" the Camp


It's so encouraging to see Latter-day Saints rising up to the Church's call to help refugees around the world.

When volunteers from the U.K. asked how they could help refugees in a camp voluntarily managed by Lisa Campbell, she asked them to buy paint so the residents could "beautify" their own space.

"They weren't so gung-ho for that," Campbell recalled.

The volunteers initially thought there were more pressing needs at the Oinofita camp, about 45 minutes north of Athens, Greece. And so did camp residents, who complained about not even having doors or ceilings.

"I told them to trust me, that this was an important project," Campbell said.
