In February and March, Ingrid Jooren volunteered in the Nea Kavala refugee camp in Northern Greece. On a daily basis, Ingrid works as an administrative coordinator at Young Lives, an international study of childhood poverty at the University of Oxford. When she volunteered, Greece experienced its coldest winter in 40 years, with temperatures reaching -20 degrees Celcius. In a blog post, she describes the difficult situation that the refugees in Nea Kavala live under, and also reflects on her time as a volunteer.
