Day in the life

We had between 1200 and 1500 refugees from the first train tonight. It was snowing. Children were arriving to us crying, freezing, and wet; and leaving us warm, dry and smiling – with warm clothes, new boots, and chocolates in hand.

But it was pandemonium. Sometimes it felt like shoes were flying everywhere. Refugees helping us help other refugees. So many people – desperate people, polite people, thankful people. So many requests, so many thanks, so many people we helped.

Thank you to those who donated today. As I mentioned, we have January’s distribution covered per our estimates. We still need to cover February. If we can keep this distribution going through the end of the coldest season this will be a very, very good thing. I love you all.
