Amna means ‘safe’ and that’s exactly what we do – support displaced communities to feel safe again after the trauma of conflict and forced displacement. Please donate today on #GivingTuesday so we can continue and expand our work to support refugees wherever they are.

We recently welcomed @semaj187 and @drlwabanya to Greece where we explored the social, systemic + political barriers to #refugee health. Selective solidarity is one that can cause further distress + disrupt the healing process.

One year ago at least 27 people lost their lives in the Channel. Not a lot has changed; asylum seekers are still forced into dangerous journeys, dehumanisation has led to attacks and detention camps are having catastrophic impacts on mental health. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/nov/24/a-year-after-27-drowned-crossing-the-channel-migrants-still-suffer-in-calais

Extended detainment at refugee camps is directly linked to worsening mental health among refugees. New ‘models’ of closed refugee camps will only further exacerbate this. https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/migrants-greece-refugees-ccac-camp-1.6652263 @CBC #RefugeesWelcome
