The Drops provide food and care

The Drop in the Ocean volunteers provide both food and care to small and large refugees in Greece…

You may support our work (and get a nice book) by pre order the Drop in the Ocean book here…


The gentle fingers of a Drop touch the cheek of a Little One, peering warily at her. She has given him fresh orange juice to drink.  And she has given him a touch of comfort.

She will take home with her in her heart this moment, forever.

This is who we are

This is who we are. This is the spirit that we bring with us. Let us weave our many cultures into the fabric of a far better world.

Let us honor the Creator—your Creator, my Creator—by helping each other to become the fulfillment of his sacred dream.

Our book about refugees and volunteers in Greece will be ready for printing in a few weeks.

The book features author John Slade’s reflections on Eirik J. Solheim’s images. Drop in the Ocean General Secretary, Trude Jacobsen and Drop in the Ocean Chios Field Coordinator Janne Hegna will write the prefaces.

The book will contain 100 black and white images and the same number of corresponding texts – short (as the one below) and long.

This is image and text is number 7 in the book (in the book all images are on the right page and the corresponding text on the left (verso) page).

As it would be a pity if we printed too few copies, we urge you to pre order you copy or copies here…


Wonderful Greek orange juice for breakfast, with a big piece of bread.

Note the smile around the straw.
