After 2 1/2 years of voluntary work with the refugees in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Greece and Serbia, I have focused my time to work in northern Greece, where there's over 60,000 displaced refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq, amongst other countries. My focus is one one particular camp, Nea Kavala, as well as a housing community where families have been taken out of the camps. I am teaching English, German and offering art sessions.
I have a vast network of friends and donors that allows me to channel clothing, art supplies and other donations mainly to Greece.
We're already experiencing very cold temperatures in the evenings and have an urgent need for winter clothes in all the camps and housing communities. I tend to vulnerable cases in the camps. We have many pregnant women and women with many children.
In addition, I am teaching people how to design jewelry and sell it to sustain basic food and clothing costs.
I sell the beautiful children's drawings and give them 100% of the proceeds so their mothers/family have money for food. All supplies I buy myself or from donated art supplies through NeedsList.

I am on the front lines two to three weeks a month. I have close contact with all volunteers and displaced persons and need your support.
Thank you in advance to all the many people who have supported my personal campaign. We've been able to move mountains during this most difficult time and bring some joy and love to these people that have been displaced.
With much love,
