MB Leland returned from five weeks serving in refugee camps on the island of Lesvos, Greece, as well as helping families on the mainland. There, she distributed aid donated from Refugee Impact supporters, delivered food and supplies in refugee camps, connected families to local support projects and more.
Her favorite experience was bringing children (and adults) into the water to experience the peace and tranquility if can offer. "This is the first time they have been in the water since they almost died in it,” MB explained. “Helping them establish a new relationship with the sea is my way of helping them process the trauma of running for their lives, only to land in a refugee camp that some feel is worse than the war they left behind."
