Story

I'm off to work, in September 2018, as a doctor with the inspirational ERCI - a Greek nonprofit organisation that provides efficient emergency response and humanitarian aid to refugees making the desperate voyage across the Mediterranean. I will be working in the search and rescue team providing emergency medical care to those who have come into difficulty at sea, and I will also be contributing to the ongoing healthcare of those in the refugee camps in Lesbos. 

Whilst it may have slipped from the news recently, migration here is still a huge problem; a report by the IOM published at the close of 2017 found that at least 33,761 migrants have died in the Mediterranean between 2000 and 2017 - making it by far the world’s deadliest border.

The issues that have driven migrants to risk their lives in this way will have already taken a great toll on their health, then add the perilous traumatic journey, and then the unique strains of overcrowded refugee camp life and this becomes a group with exceptional healthcare needs. I've felt immense guilt at standing by when I could at least try to be of some help to those struggling at the edge of my home, Europe. So now I'm going to try! And ERCI seem to think I will be useful! 🤞🏽

I’m going entirely as a volunteer so will be self-funding the travel, accommodation, and living costs etc as well as hoping to contribute towards medical supplies and running costs of the charity. So, any donations towards the cause would be GREATLY appreciated!

Love, Tom xx

We are lost at sea and no one is answering us.
