A 57-year-old mother of two, Kathleen Conabree has chosen to leave behind the life she's built in order to help those who had no choice but to leave theirs behind.
Having sold nearly everything she owned, she's bought a van and travelled 1500 miles across Europe, navigating mountain roads, brake failures and self-doubt along the way.
Her destination? Greece, a country where 62,000 refugees and migrants remain trapped by EU migration policy and border closures.And now, brakes repaired and doubts in check, her work can truly begin.
"There are loads of physical donations, but too many refugees do not know what the next step is in the processes in Greece," she said. "Information isn't all that sexy or headline- grabbing, so getting sponsors and financial contributions to continue the work can be difficult. But it really is the most vital, and missing, piece of the puzzle for the people stranded here".
Greece, struggling with its own financial crisis, is a country most refugees and migrants hope to move on from - originally envisioned as an entry point into the European Union and no more.
But since the closure of the Balkan route and last year's EU-Turkey deal it has, in the words of the country's own Prime Minister, become a "warehouse of souls".
For those who wish to stick to the increasingly limited legal options, knowing how to engage with the system - preparing for an asylum interview, for example, or appealing a negative decision - can be the difference between a new start or deportation.
With a generous donation from RefuComm, who have been part funded by 'Help Refugees', new equipment to show films and guidance from Sharon, Kathleen intends use her van to take this information to those who need it most, whether that involves using a projector to show movies about the asylum process, handing out leaflets or even organising workshops around key issues like interview preparation, reunification and relocation. Many people in the camps don't read so RefuComm have made films, audios and an animation to make it easier to engage people in the processes in a way that they understand. These will be shown in the camps by Kathleen and translators will be made available for questions and answer sessions.https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCwovROtk5ZCVPZNZoGADC2GzxubpMuOC
