In the spring of 2021, master’s student in political science Ida Marlene Henriksen (25) interned with A Drop it the Ocean. In this blog post, she shares her internship experience in the department of communications and fundraising.
Humanitarian and documentary photographer Abhijit Alka Anil has recently returned from a trip to Greece, where he documented A Drop in the Ocean’s operations and taught photography to our community volunteers.
In Greece, camps are closing, new camps are being built, and refugees and other migrants are being transferred from the islands to the mainland. A Drop in the Ocean is adapting to the new developments to support the needs of people forced to flee.
A Drop in the Ocean currently has limited access to the temporary site of Kara Tepe but our international field workers have found clever ways to incorporate different language activities for community volunteers in their day-to-day work.
The Ušivac refugee camp outside Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina houses around 750 displaced persons. The conditions are harsh, and the camp population consists mainly of families with small children and unaccompanied minors. A Drop in the Ocean established a presence in the camp last year and now offers computer courses in addition to distributions.
