Carry the Future

Monday, February 15, 2016

For two weeks, staff member Heather Colletto is in Greece with a group called Carry the Future, distributing baby carriers to refugees as they journey to asylum with their families. After a dangerous rubber boat crossing, families take a long ferry ride to mainland Europe, where Carry the Future meets them on the docks and fits moms and dads with carriers to help the rest of their journey, which continues with hundreds of miles across Europe. "It's an emotional time, of course, but the families are so relieved to finally be in relative safety. They love the carriers! To hold their babies (one was a mere two weeks old!) and hug the parents is something so many of us long to do, so it is an honor to be here," says Heather. ‪#‎missionmonday‬ ‪#‎carrythefuture‬
