I am french and swiss and currently a student in international development at McGill university in Canada. I am interested in humanitarian emergency care and forced migrations. I spent 6 months in Greece and 2 months in Lebanon working with refugees through various projects such as a field kitchen, children’s activities, environmental programs and of course, education initiatives such as the Refugee Library!
My name is Gabi, I’m a Lebanese-American who took time off from studies in International Development at McGill to spend half a year in Greece volunteering with various projects for refugees. From this beautiful mobile library, to English conversation classes, and other amazing initiatives such as a field kitchens and micro business projects we carried a message of solidarity, love and humanity in all the work we did.
