In June this year Helen Lindley was to be travelling with 5 other volunteers to work as part of a Dentaid team in Moria camp, Lesvos, Greece. Her plans have now had to change, and Helen explains why
Helen told us:
“As many of you are aware I was to be part of an Aid Team going to Lesvos, in Greece to provide Dental treatments to the Refugees in the Moria Camp. Sadly my trip has had to be cancelled due to Eurorelief handing over responsibility to Health Point Charity. They have declined to work with us as they have already sufficient volunteers. The good news is they have managed to secure a full time Dentist in Camp, which will make a huge difference and is really what is needed in the Camp”.
“Although it is very disappointing not to be working with the refugees, I am pleased they will be getting more reliable help. This leaves me transferring to another Aid Trip. This will be to Morocco in May 2019, I’ll be based in Chefchaoen working in rural villages and local schools, providing pain relief and Dental Health Education. Although it’s not the Aid Trip I chose, it’s still working with people who need help. Fortunately I have managed to transfer the funds already raised, so won’t lose the kind donations people have made” .
