We support refugees after their arrival 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 undertaken the same journey, but he cannot achieve his goals alone. The NGO works in Lesvos, Greece and responds to refugees in need of help as they enter EU waters and supports them in the initial minutes and months after their arrival.
