Volunteering in Lesbos with Refugee 4 Refugees

Last year I didn't get to continue the volunteering tradition, but this year I left, with my mum, on New Years Day for Lesbos, Greece. We're volunteering with "Refugee for Refugees," which was started by Omar Alshakal, a remarkable 23-year old Syrian refugee. There's a good profile of his story, which reads a bit like a combination of an epic tragedy and a Bond film script, in the Independent here.)

My mum Toni and I will be here until the 14th January; we'll provide some updates in the coming days.
