I am in Lesvos, Greece working for Lighthouse relief. I will be working with environmental clean-up operations and running up-cycling workshops from life jackets in local refugee camps. There are piles of flimsy, fake life jackets that either fall apart, sink or turn the user face down in the water. Whilst here I will also participate on night watches and work at the reception camp for newly arrived refugees. I have visited refugee camps where I hope to set up volunteer run acupuncture clinics to help the most vulnerable people. Today I saw a 9 month pregnant lady who is worried about giving birth in the camp and a father collapse at hearing the daughter who he is separated from is ill. Acupuncture could help with post traumatic stress, pain relief and with peri-natal care as well as other health issues.
It would be great to have some support so I can continus efforts in supporting refugees in crisis. Thank you for your help
