One of many abandoned buildings where refugees reside in horrible conditions, reliant completely on NGO's who provide basic necessities. I'm currently with the organisation Doc Mobile providing healthcare to homeless refugees like those living in these buildings. We've seen many people mainly with infected wounds due to the conditions they're living in. I'm here until Monday, and will be purchasing medical supplies in Greece that are in short supply in the ambulance - if you want to donate, check out the link on my bio.

If you are ever in Sarajevo, I highly recommend visiting the Museum of Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide. Heartbreaking and powerful reminder that the main victims of any war are always women, children and civilians. Looking at the "never again" message, I can't help but thinking that similar horrendous crimes are currently happening in Syria and other active war zones. How can any governments/countries close borders to refugees that are fleeing the violence no human being should ever endure #refugeeswelcome#stopwar#neveragain#notoviolence#notowar
We have distributed pans at Doliana Camp to make it better for the families to cook for themselves.
It is your support that allows us to distribute necessary items like this. Please go to the link in our bio and make a donation so that we can continue to distribute #aidwithdignity to refugees.

ABDURAHAM FROM ERITREA, DETAINED IN ISRAEL, AGED 12 MONTHS
Abduraham arrived in Israel with his mother with a cough and a runny nose. They were detained upon arrival. After repeated requests, a physician examined Abduraham and his mother. The physician noticed a strange scar on the boy’s leg. Because they did not speak the same language, it was difficult for the physician to understand Abduraham’s mother’s explanation of the scar. In order to explain, Abduraham’s mother, then only 22 years old, lifted her shirt and showed a similar scar. In the Sinai, they had been held captive for three months by the smugglers. The scar on the boy’s leg and the corresponding scar on his mother, were from where the chains had been attached to their bodies. The only time they were not chained together was when smugglers unlocked Abduraham’s mother to rape her. Only after paying US$10,000 were they released and taken to the Israeli border.
Att hålla på med poesiuppläsningar är både naket och otroligt givande. För mig är det viktigt att få ut ett budskap, att stå upp för människors lika värde i ord och handling. Det innebär att få möta och diskutera med en publik och träffa otroligt många bra poeter! Att vara poet betyder också många gigs på ideell basis, här på pubörat för läkarstudenterna i #Linköping.
