Not your typical Sunday afternoon coffee chat


Sunday afternoon’s event was very busy and greatly  enjoyed by all - even though it was not your typical light-hearted coffee & cake conversation. We had Eva-Lena Hellmark, the manager of RightHere Cyprus Second Hand Shop, and several of her team members/volunteers telling us about the work they do under the umbrella of Wellspring Association to support victims of human trafficking.
RightHere is a second hand shop in the center of  Limassol (corner Anexartisias - St. Andrew’s Street) that is different. It is also a shop that wants to MAKE a difference. RightHere is part of Wellspring Association, a non-profit organization that is working for the support and restoration of individuals dealing with crises in their lives (due to prostitution, human trafficking, or other abusive and difficult situations) or who are in vulnerable/at-risk situations. Text taken from their Facebook page.
