About Because We Carry

In late august 2015, three young women from Amsterdam left for Lesvos. In their luggage, over one thousand baby carriers – donated by hundreds of concerned people – for deprived mothers with children seeking refuge and safe-haven in Europe.

Once arrived on the small Greek island they encountered a situation worse than they could have imagined. The human desolation was immense. People suffered from hunger and cold. These people – stranded on the shores of Europe – needed help, urgently.

It was this moment that three friends decided to act according from what they’ve learned from Ghandi in their yoga experiences, and become the vehicle for the change they wish to see.
