Human being are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is affiliated with pain,
other members uneasy will remain.
If you've no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain!"
Saadi Shirazi- (Translation by M. Aryanpoor)
Thousand and Thousands of Syrians, Izadies and Afghans have been forced to leave their countries, homes and families behind and take their lives in their hands before any evil power takes it away from them.
They lost their living or their loved ones on this very dangerous journey of hope. The situation for these refugees is life or death.
but the pain is deeper than this. They are traumatized and detached from their emotional bonds waiting behind the borders with a hope that they will find a safe ground.
As a Farsi speaker who grew up in this region, I decided to join one of the refugee camps in Greece to serve as a translator, to listen to refugee's stories and to help ease their pain. I will help them to communicate their emotions and needs to the camp's management while I will be teaching Farsi/English to children age of 5-16 at Katsikas Refugee camp. Katsikas Camp is operated by Lighthouse Relief-
a Norwegian NGO. http://www.lighthouserelief.org/
The scope of this crisis demands funds beyond united nation's capacity.
Please pledge your kind support to relieve their pains and suffering of the refugees. 100% of funds received will be used to purchase needed medical and educational and refugee's basic needs.
Thank you in Advance.
