Zine is a collection of personal essays, art, and poems by refugees, who are currently stuck on the Greek island of Leros. It is a platform celebrating freedom of expression and aims to defy stereotypes about refugees and migrants.
Zine is a publication of Echo100Plus, a nonprofit organization supporting refugees in Greece. Zine was created at The Echo-Hub-Leros, a day centre that was established as a response to the need for a united approach to provide educative and social activities for adult refugees.
The contributors are mothers, brothers, sons, tailors, architects, college students, artists, activists, aspiring nurses, and teachers with hopes and dreams and goals. We hope reading their stories inspires you to share them and help us raise awareness for their causes. This is the second of three issues; the first can be found at https://issuu.com/echo100plus/docs/zine
