Congregation Emanu-El’s Adult Education Committee invites you to hear a talk about
the refugee crisis in Greece on Thursday, November 17th, 7:00 pm at
Congregation Emanu-El.

Victoria resident Phoebe Ramsay will be sharing her recent experiences
as a volunteer on the front lines of the refugee crisis in Greece. 

She
volunteered on the ground over seven months from December 2015 to June 2016.
Her journey brought her to Athens, the Greek islands where refugees came
ashore, and finally the makeshift camp of Idomeni where 15,000 people were
stranded after the European borders were sealed in March 2016. She will be
sharing stories of hope, of desperation, and of humanity.

Admission by donation.
