TAKING A SHOWER IN A SAFE PLACE
For transportation to and from the camp, ShowerPower and Allied Aid have invested in a 9 person minivan. The house is open to welcome women and children from Tuesday till Sunday. The house is open to welcome women and children from Tuesday till Sunday. More than 12.000 women and children have already taken a shower here!
The cozy old Greek house counts three bathrooms. We want to create an intimate atmosphere where people can feel safe. We are currently working hard to found a second bathhouse for women. ShowerPower would also love to provide hot showers to men and boys in a different bathhouse. The goal is to provide likewise facilitations on different locations in the future.
EuroRelief – an organisation that is active within camp Moria – hands out shower tickets on behalf of ShowerPower. This brings order and serenity when the ladies are picked up at the ShowerPower ‘bus stop’.
Shower Power gets 25 to 30 women and children on a daily visit for a hot shower. This has proven to be beneficial to our guests from camp Moria. At ShowerPower they can enjoy a relaxing moment full of personal attention, where they are treated like the precious people they are.
Volunteers welcome our guests the way they would welcome their own friends at home. They will look after the children while the mothers shower. They can help where is needed, pour out hot tea or soup, play, listen, talk (sometimes with hands and feet) or sing. Then they bring the guests back to Moria and prepare the ShowerPower house for the next group.
