A deputation from the Caravan accompanied by many reporters from the mass media and with the support of the Hellenic Armed Forces of Kosovo (ELDYKO), visited the Serbian enclaves in Kosovo with a view to helping the orphaned children.
We managed to visit many towns and villages where children from the programme of "economic adoption" were living, and gave direct financial assistance into the hands of parents and guardians, many of whom were widowed mothers. We also passed on many letters and gifts from their Greek donors.
We received, in return, the immense gratitude of the children and their guardians towards their donor friends, when , with much emotion, they received money, gifts and warm wishes. The Caravan came to be their only hope and the only humanitarian organization to have reached their regions to bring them help.
We promised that we would certainly return and assured them that the Greek people would help and stand by them in the fight for survival which they were giving under such difficult circumstances.
At the same time, with the invaluable help of Hellenic Armed Forces of Kosovo (ELDYKO), and without any discrimination (Albanians, Serbs, Gypsies), we gave parcels of food to impoverished families of the area, always following the same criteria.
We owe great thanks to the Hellenic Armed Forces of Kosovo (ELDYKO) who willingly and tirelessly offered us their valuable assistance and security in order for us to bring our mission to a favorable conclusion. Without their help we could not have accomplished it.
