I choose to stop being silent. I decided to speak out about the abuse that happened to me while I was working for Help Refugees / Choose Love in Greece.
After I published the first post on Facebook about how Choose Love (previously known as Help Refugees, and operating under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund) failed to protect me—and others—from predators working among us, and then proceeded to continue failing TO DO NO HARM, I received an outpouring of support from so many people. Together, we will continue fighting for justice and for the truth.
The truth is: Systematic sexual and psychological abuse is rampant in the humanitarian sector, and some organizations continually fail to put in place the necessary structures to protect employees, volunteers, and even refugees. Environments that protect predators and silence victims will only be allowed to exist if we don’t break them with our voices.
This page was created to break the silence around these cases.
