A year ago, 23-year old Fridoon Joinda from Afghanistan arrived in Europe. Together with his brothers Fardin and Jalal, he came from Turkey in a rubber dinghy.

In Afghanistan, the three brothers had been prosecuted for their artistic work: making political films. Trapped on the Greek island Lesvos in the barbed wired camp Moria for a year, the three Afghan television artists continue their political work.

Under the highly precarious conditions on the island, they made impressive short movies about the situation of refugees on Lesvos, first with a cell phone only than with borrowed equipment:

After one deadlocked year, Fridoon was eventually granted asylum in Greece. From now on, he will not get any financial support from the Greek state. But he wants to continue his work, reporting about the situation and needs of refugees and he is eager to find a job where he can make use of his abilities and continue his education.

Therefore, Fridoon needs support. He needs money for survival, proper filming equipment and possibilities to travel and screen his movies. He wants to continue his studies to be able to work on a professional level and support other refugees trapped on the Greek islands. https://www.facebook.com/fridoon.joinda

Lots of thanks to all the generous donations! 1000 Euros are reached! With this money, Fridoon will be able to produce his next film and continue working in a refugee radio show, a great success. If we can collect still more donations, 23-year-old Fridoon might be able to continue his education to get a degree and engage in film making on a professional level.

Dear friends,
please help sharing and supporting this campaign!
Refugee film maker Fridoon urgently needs support to continue his work, documenting underreported human rights abuses and about the life of refugees trapped on the Greek islands since the EU-Turkey deal. Even though he has been granted asylum, he doesn't get any money for survival from the Greek state. Thanks to everybody, who supported him already!
