Ashley Gilbertson – Refugee Crisis in Europe | A volunteer on Lesbos, Kadoni Kinan, 26, pulled a young Syrian boy from a raft that had just arrived from Turkey.
In 2010, when Mr. Kinan fled Syria, he stayed at a Red Cross center in Belgium for more than two years. “They gave me a lot when I was living there, and now it’s time for me to give them something back,” he said.
Mr. Kinan, 26, flew to Greece to volunteer two months ago.
“I did this because I am myself a refugee and I know this feeling very well. It would be good for the refugees who come by boat to find someone welcoming them,” he said. “I found my soul doing this.”
