Concerning the coronavirus and registrations:

In light of recent developments relating to COVID-19, we have decided that we will not process applications for the time being. This is because the situation is constantly changing, and we must do all in our power to prevent further transmission of the virus.

Our registration form remains open and you are welcome to register, however, you may experience a longer processing time.

We follow the advise of relevant authorities and health institutions, including the Greek Ministry of Health and World Health Organization (WHO). We do not know how this situation will unfold. We have already seen that airlines have cancelled many of their flights, ferries are cancelled, and there are travel restrictions in many European cities. This will likely affect our work.

We also emphasise that A Drop in the Ocean is a volunteer-based organization and all travel is at your own risk. Hence, any interferences related to your travel, either by the closure of DiH activities or other external factors, will not be covered by DiH. As such, DiH is not liable for any costs.
