We support refugees arriving to Europe.
Syrian refugee Omar Alshakal fled his home town of Deir Ez-Zor in 2014 after ISIS took control and he was severely injured during a missile strike. Omar swam for 14 hours from Turkey to Greece to reach safety.
The 23-year-old started Refugee4Refugees to improve safety and support for other asylum seekers who have followed his journey, but he cannot achieve his goals alone. The non-political foundation works from the European border of Lesvos, Greece and responds to refugees in need of help as they enter EU waters and supports them in the initial minutes and hours after arrival.
