Meet Jose Tomas Martin, one of our long term visiting volunteers. Jose joined the Movement On The Ground team last year, working mostly in our clothing shop in Kara Tepe and Mytiline warehouse.
At the end of his stay, Jose met our technical coordinator Takis, who encouraged him to return to Lesvos to assist with electrical maintanence in both Kara Tepe and the Olive Groves. Jose promised to take him up on his offer.
Returning to Lesvos in Autumn this year, Jose was faced with restrictions of the corona pandemic, but decided to stay on the island. He has been working with the team throughout this period of COVID-19 to assist in electrical and maintanence demands such as installing fans and hoisting shaded areas for the upcoming summer.
We are so fortunate to have Jose a part of our MOTG family, so we decided to catch up with his to learn more about his story.
