My name is Shirin and I am from Palesiane. I currently live in occupied Palesine experiencing the

struggles under Israeli rule. I am a psychotherapist and yoga teacher and do a lot of art therapy with

both children and adults. I have recently returned from Greece where I have been an independent

volunteer in the refugee camps for the past 6 months. Whilst in Greece I and other volunteers set up

a school within the famous Idomeni refugee camp where we focused on art therapy for children,

teenagers and adults as well as regular yoga classes. We focused on teaching the children as they had

not been in education for quite some me. As well as this I and others o$ered psychological and

emotional support for many of these refugees a%er their incredible ordeals – each of them with a

tragic story to tell. As I am Arabic and English speaking I am able to communicate freely with the

refugees and able to assess the situation from the inside and )nd out what it is that they are

desperate for. Afer the closure of the Idomeni camp I then set up another school in the nearby Eko

camp which proved a huge success unl the eventual closure of the camp when all refugees were

evacuated and moved to military camps. Since then many refugees have moved on – some relocated

to other countries, many living in camps and on the streets with no money, food, warm clothes.

Many of these refugees are unaccompanied minors whose family are either stranded in another

country, le% in Syria or killed in the war. Many of these refugees are currently in Germany which is

where I am planning to travel to. Please donate to help fund my cause to travel to Germany serbia, hungary and maybe othe spots, to check the needs and to check on people`s situation, and before winter to be with

supplies such as warm clothes, shoes and art supplies. I aim to set up an art therapy school in the

German camps with therapy sessions and I ideally would like to travel there by the end of September.
