‘This I can carry’

pre athens image

Everyone has, at some point, packed a bag to take with them on a journey; but how many of us have packed a bag that will hold all we have left in this world?     When you’re forced to leave your home, what do you bring with you?  What will fit into the rucksack or bag that you, yourself must carry for such a long way?  What size is this bag, how much does it weigh?  How much can you carry; physically, psychologically?

On the 11th of May (2017) Annabel will be travelling to Athens to meet up and work with refugees who find themselves held up in Athens, Greece, waiting for a new, safe place to live until it is possible for them to go home.  She will be working under the umbrella of the UNHCR and the Nostos Organisation to make work for her project ‘This I can carry’.
