My First Refugee Mission

Today’s world is full of new technologies which made a huge impact on the field of health care, education, tourism and entertainment. Today things are possible that twenty years ago people thought were impossible. But I still feel when it comes to things like Income equality, health care for the poor, Support and acknowledgement of mental health issues we are still in the 90’s or even worse. The possibility of wars capable of destroying the whole human is race is now more real than ever. As a person I prefer human connection and human relationship over materialistic. I also prefer the environment and this world over trends. But with everything wrong going on the world I decided to make an impact.

 

I decided to start my mission by helping out the people that suffered from the Syrian War. The atrocities of the Bashar Al Assad regime gave rise to an unending civil war in Syria that was soon hijacked by the Islamic State. The amount of  atrocities the Syrians were put through is unimaginable. Millions of Syrians fled from the control of ISIS to seek refuge in neighbouring Turkey and various European countries like Greece, France, Sweden etc. I started my Mission from Thessaloniki, Greece and then went to Turkey.

My Work in Greece was mostly about helping the refugees affected by the Civil war in Syria. On my first day I visited a refugee center to meet the other volunteers to plan for the coming days. I went out with my friend to another refugee center in Thessaloniki, it was a beautiful place where people from different faiths and different walks of life are warmly welcomed. We discussed important issues on human trafficking etc as the people in those center were vulnerable to gangs etc. We also helped them with their laundry work, and provided them with food. I was honoured to be part of the center team that not only provided the people with basic amenities but also goes to the extent of providing them as much as Free Dental service. The experience of working as a team, going to buy groceries and other items for the people, seeing the world through their eyes, getting to know the ground reality was nothing less than Overwhelming. I made my best attempt to give a platform to some of the stories and experiences that these  people have gone through. From horrible experiences trying to flee the country to facing issues with the police despite having proper refugee paperwork is something that often makes me wonder if the deviation from human to human connection and harmony for the sole purpose of technical and financial development is even worth it?

The last stop of my mission was Turkey. I visited the two major cities Ankara and Istanbul for my work. I had a really supportive team to help me in Turkey, most of our work was pretty much the same as that in Greece. We went to get groceries and food items for the people. We stopped at a camp and were greeted by so many cute children. The happiness and joy on their faces seeing us with the food packages and most importantly seeing that there are people who care for them was one of the most satisfying things for me in the entire trip.

 

This mission would have never been successful without the help of so many people who contributed the best they could. I shall remain forever grateful to th
