No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark. You only run for the border when you see the whole city running as well.

FROM SHINGAL TO SERRES...

Tucked away at the base of the Vrontous mountain range in Northern Greece lies a charming town called Serres. You would never guess that 450+ Yazidis from the Shingal area of Iraqi Kurdistan now call this placehome, albeit temporarily.

Our Yazidi friends here have survived genocide, suffered significant loss and grief, and made the dangerous journey to Greece. Ours is the only full-time team providing psycho-social services to these wonderful people.  

Our community center, which is located 100 meters from the camp in a humble farmer's field, is a buzzing hive of education and healing. Our dedicated team members teach:

English
German
Trauma-informed yoga
Dance
Music (piano, guitar, singing, etc.) to some of the most eager students you'll ever meet. 

Our warehouse also provides a quarterly clothing distribution "shop."
