In 2015, Advocate Maria Jammal and Dr. Essam Daod, stood on the shore of Lesvos Island. Along with Psychologist Mohammad Mansor and other professional volunteers, they waited for Syrian refugees to arrive in lifeboats.
As a doctor, Essam focused on providing urgent life-saving medical treatment and psychological first aid to refugees. Meanwhile, Maria and Mohammad worked in hospitals and camps trying to reunite families and helping people cope with their new reality.
The dream for Humanity Crew grew out of this experience. Today, we focus our work on forcibly displaced children and their families. We support refugees around the world through direct intervention. We also train others as mental health first responders.
