Lesbos

Lesbos

 

In September and October 2021 I will be working as a medical volunteer in a refugee camp on Lesvos for 7 weeks. This is a Greek island only 7 km from the Turkish mainland. From BRF (Boat Refugee Foundation) we go daily with a team of doctors, nurses and psychologists to the mobile clinic in the camp to provide medical assistance. We are supported here by the 'ground team', which consists of refugees from the camp who act as interpreters. The post is open 7 days a week, from 5:00 PM to midnight, as no other medical assistance is available. The focus is therefore on emergency care. 🩺

Life in the camp is tough. Unfortunately, it is not allowed to publish blogs online. A WhatsApp group has been created where I share weekly updates (please contact me if you want to be added to this group).
