Christa Hobart: Walker, Volunteer and Mom from Buffalo
Christa came to Greece in 2015 to do what she could for refugees, like so many of us after seeing the body of Alan Kurdi washed up on a Turkish shore. She has made several humanitarian trips to Greece with our friends Carry the Future and Allied Aid.
We were also lucky to her along as one of our walkers retracing the refugee route this month before she travelled on to volunteer on the island of Chios.
We talk about the poignancy of that walk, the enjoyment of being a volunteer and the extraordinary people we’ve met.
Christa is one of life’s smilers with boundless enthusiasm and affection who just had to do something to help and as she says “One person can make a difference.”
