Thank you for visiting my funding page.

I’m hoping that you pressed this link because you’re thinking that you might be able to be a part of this exciting journey that is just beginning by giving to support me!

For those who don’t know, I am Rachel, a nurse by profession. After hearing and seeing refugees fleeing their countries on TV, facing difficult conditions, I decided to visit Athens in Greece. Operation Mobilisation are working in Athens amongst refugees and with women trapped in exploitation. They work closely with other organisations and support local churches in their ministries to these people.

From September 2019, I have decided to go to Athens for 2 years to work with OM amongst refugee communities, linking my two passions of nursing and serving vulnerable people together. I was heartbroken by the stories I heard from the refugees and other volunteers in Athens.

Refugees are coping with everything from sickness and death to childbirth and bringing up children alone and without the support of family and their community around them. They feel alone and hopeless. Many of the exploited women have been forced or tricked into their current situation, which can often mean shame stopping them from ever being able to return to their former homes.

I love the heart behind what OM and other organisations are doing: working together to bring community and hope back into these people's lives.  I want to go and be a part of this using my nursing skills to teach basic healthcare lessons and support the ministries already happening in Athens.

Thank you for your kind and generous support and helping me make this happen!
