Story

There are tens of thousands of people from different parts of the world living in the Refugee camps of Lesbos Island in Greece. All of them have lived through traumatic experiences which forced them to leave their homes, and are now living in dire conditions in overcrowded refugee camps. My heart aches every day thinking about all these children, women, and men and I have a deep need to go and do what I can to help.

My good friend Fabiola Velasquez is living in Lesbos and has created an organisation called Earth Medicine, which is offering free treatments to the many people with chronic and acute injuries who live in the Moria and Kara Tepe refugee camps. I am joining her this spring to offer acupuncture treatments for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and for physical ailments. I will be working non-stop while I'm there as I want to collect enough data to demonstrate the effectiveness of a new acupuncture protocol for the treatment of PTSD. If it comes out as effective as I think it is, I will be able to offer the same protocol to many more people in the future.

Please help me collect enough money to make this happen, I will need thousands of Acupuncture needles, moxa, ear seeds, and other materials so that I can help as many people as possible.

With gratitude and love to all who can help.

May healing spread throughout the World and may love, peace and harmony grow in our hearts so that it can reach every living being in our beautiful planet Sandra Arbelaez

    Dear supporters, Sorry for my long silence. I've been awaiting the time when I can go to Lesbos without the risk of taking the virus there. Sadly, last week they had the first case of it in Moria refugee camp, and within days it went up to 35. Yesterday, the camp burned down leaving the 13000 refugees who lived there in a desperate situation. I would like to donate at least some of the money I have collected to help at this time, people I know there will make sure it gets well used. If you don't agree with this please let me know. Much love

    Dear supporters, as the situation in Europe becomes more and more precarious it has become clear that my trip to Lesbos will not happen in the spring. I have already bought a lot of the needle supplies and have some other things on order so I will just be postponing the trip until later in the year when the stormed has passed. In the meantime, please stay safe and well in these strange times. With love, Sandra

    We've got to 50% of the target!!!! Thank you from my heart to all of those who have supported my project so far. The coronavirus epidemic in China has had an impact on our needle supplies here so I will begin to stock up on needles: Thousands of needles for the PTSD project and a few thousand more to treat those with physical injuries, and also ear needles and ear seeds =) With gratitude and love to all Sandra <3
