Words directly from my a dear friend and refugee Abdulazziz:
Mohammad is here in eko for two and a half months, spending a lot of time with the refugees as an English teacher, and as a health care provider.
Why did he start volunteering?
He started volunteering when he promised a woman who was in a difficult situation 8 years ago that he will help the people who are in hard situations. Some of his work in the past includes: Helping build water wells in West africa, and disaster relief work in America.
The difference with this volunteer is that he is in everywhere!! Not just volunteering, but sitting with the people, listening to their stories, playing sports with the kids, and helping them as much as possible!! Mohammad will be leaving soon, and a lot of people are going to miss his existence here, and miss his smile..... I asked mohammad if you have a message for Europe what you wanna say ? " These people are not just "Refugees" They are mothers, fathers, and children. They all want the same thing as you do: A roof over their head, food on the table, and most important, safety and security"
Through our eyes, as refugees:
