“Almost all of Lefteris' opponents were very good and we were worried, but in the end he showed that he can handle such pressure. He has done it many times, but it always feels like we are starting over. The load he carries is very heavy and I bow before his courage!” Mr. Raftis said and continued:

We must “Everyone should try to give something to these children and I'm not talking about money, but I'm talking about support and hugs. If they have it, they will do everything without asking for anything for themselves.”
