One Denison male has only returned from Greece, where he was assisting to caring for thousands of refugees entrance opposite a Aegean Sea.
Sixty-six-year-old retirement Gary Capshaw is behind in Texoma and on a opposite kind of mission, to teach others on a interloper crisis.
“These people are not a enemies,” Capshaw said. “They’re only unequivocally people who desperately need assistance that they are not getting.”
Each day thousands of refugees tide into Greece, entrance from countries like Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Capshaw, a proffer from Denison, was there to accommodate them.
For 10 days, he helped prepare and palm out prohibited bowls of soup to thousands of refugees on a Greek Island of Chios. While there he listened dozens of harrowing stories of escape.
“You can have a stereotypes though when we accommodate them face-to-face we find out they’re only cold, hungry, frightened people who all they wish is an event to live,” he said.
The tiny kitchen Capshaw and other volunteers worked out of served dual cups of soup and one square of bread, to 1,500 people a day. To do this it costs $30,000 a month, saved by donations done online to a Chios interloper support group.
Capshaw pronounced his goal now is to widespread a word, during home.
“They’re only people who have no other options,” he said. “I meant when we take your child and we leave home with all you’ve got and we put your child on a vessel for a 3 to 4 mile outing during dark, you’ve got to be desperate. Nothing else will expostulate people to do that.”
This week 42 refugees drowned when their vessel capsized while perplexing to cranky a Aegean sea.
Capshaw pronounced while he was there he got to know some Syrians. People he believes aren’t a hazard to United States.
“The questions we have to ask ourselves as a multitude is do we spin a backs on all of them to keep from assisting these really few, and we consider a answer should be no.”
