Kara Tepe Refugee Camp

Today, we visited the camp named Kara Tepe. It is home to 700 refugees, mostly coming from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. This is where the people we call ‘vulnerable cases’ such as single mothers with children, people with disabilities and unaccompanied minors live.

It was important for us to see how the international community responded to the refugee crisis. However it left us with many unanswered questions. What is the right approach to humanitarian aid? How should outsiders approach their presence in such a crisis? And how we should position ourselves in order to not get our emotional responses to blur our vision?

Food for thought,

Stay Human!
