How often do you turn on the news, see the terrible atrocities happening in the world, and feel helpless? Do you share posts and videos on social media, and wish you could do something more REAL, more powerful, but you don't know where to start?

I felt that way too.

So when I was offered to be a part of the solution, in a small but significant way, I jumped at the chance.

Together with a team of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, naturopaths and nutritionists, I will be making my way to Greece in February 2017 to work with Syrian refugees.

The refugee camps are going to be confronting and overcrowded. We will be dealing with malnutrition, trauma, and a vast array of illness and disease.

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of my friends, family and online community, the travel expenses for my trip to Greece were 100% crowdfunded in November... and I'm leaving soon! I will meet up with my team in Athens on the 7th February, and from there a group of us will travel north to Ritsona, where there are thousands of refugees waiting for us to lend a hand.

This is where YOU come in.

Right now, most of the refugees are living on meagre rations. As a result, many of the refugees are malnourished and suffering from nutrient deficiencies and preventable illnesses.

Once I'm there, I want to be able to leave the camps, buy fresh produce from the local Greek stores and markets, purchase any medical supplies or supplements that we need, and bring them back into camp. Our primary focus is to bring healthcare to pregnant and breastfeeding mums. I would love to be able to bring them fresh fruit and veggies, so that not only will they be nourished, they will also be able to cook their own meals, which will bring them dignity and help them, in some small way, to feel like their old selves again.

You will receive blow by blow updates on how your donation is spent.

This includes details of where every dollar of your money goes, via blog posts, Facebook posts, and even the odd video or two (assuming local Greek wifi is up to the job!).

The best place to follow along is at and on Facebook at

You will also receive a warm, fuzzy feeling, knowing that you have helped to bring comfort to someone in desperate need.

If you can't afford to donate right now (that's cool - I've been there too!), no worries - please share this page so that others may contribute.

Please help me to re-build the lives of these refugees.
