Help me support refugee children/teenagers in Lesbos, Greece through art and other means of expression. BECAUSE EVERY CHILD DESERVES THE RIGHT TO PLAY!
My name is Gemma Steemers. I am a social psychologist (working with young people) a former projectleader for young refugees and an artist.
Since april of 2018, I have been raising awareness to the situation of young refugees on Lesvos. This december (2018) I went for a pre-visit to Kara Tepe and camp Moria in Lesvos to see with my own eyes how I could make a difference for the young residents of the camps.
With the logistic aid and support of Movement on the Ground (NGO) I will be going to the camps of Lesvos in May of 2019 for at least one month to offer the unaccompanied minors ongoing projects so they can express themselves through art and creativity.
I will also be offering them an art- program that can be used after I have left. Involving the Greek community in these positive acts is one of my desires.In order to achieve my goal I could use your support.
So……that is my wish and my goal and the reason why I would be grateful if you support this project by giving a “peace" of happiness to those children/teenagers. Each donation however small will go to art-materials and ongoing creative resources for the young refugees. Because I truly believe supporting their well-being now will create a flourishing future for us all. ☮️
Thank you so much,
