Adéla al Sharua

Adéla has been working with refugees fleeing war and leaving their homelands because of an unstable economic situation in Balkans since 2015. As a human, she seeks to understand how refugees are affected by the arduous conditions they have to cope with – living without electricity, hot water, in a tent in the middle of nowhere – how all these circumstances affect their mental health. Together with her friends, she decided to improve these circumstances and provide a dignified form of aid distribution to refugees in Balkans. Through the Balkan route – Greece to Turkey – she has seen happiness and pain, hope and frustration, good and evil. Despite everything, she firmly believes that we are all humans at the core and we need to help one another.
