I am Omar. I am a refugee from Syria. Since coming to Europe to
escape the war in my country I have spent 10 months helping people in
Lesvos. I am currently volunteering full time for an NGO called
Lighthouse Relief. We
provide assistance to people arriving by boat to the north coast of
Lesvos. I want to continue helping people who have made the same
journey that I had to.
have been unable to find a job in Greece to fund my volunteering .
The financial crisis in Greece means that there is no work available.
I have now spent all of my savings helping people.
feel a great responsibility to stay in Greece and use my skills and
experience to continue helping people. Please help me to do this by
donating what you can afford and sharing this appeal.
