Our team is halfway through our documentary visits to refugee camps in Greece and Germany, and we are so grateful to the generous donors who made this happen.
Over the last few days, we have recorded the stories of a few hundred people who have been through nightmarish conditions, sometimes for decades on end, and who were exploited and robbed and overcharged at every step of the way. They are grateful for our service to them, and for the voice we are giving them when they feel so powerless. That service is made possible because of donors. Thank you!
We are excited to share more stories once we finish here in Germany this week!
Though we are a small crew of volunteers, it has been easy to find helpers along the way!
To me, the label “refugee” is a badge of honor. I invite you to honor and celebrate refugees and welcomers with me this month and to meet some of these heroes at TSOS's Virtual World Refugee Day event on 17 June.
As we strengthen our relationships with resettlement agencies, friends, and community partners, we are discovering that the work doesn't have to be big to be important.
