"I have read with great interest about what occupational therapists can do with refugees and developed straight a away interest to help or do my field work with them or help during my free time. I have up to one year to finish my education In occupational therapy although I am an OT already.
I have lived here in Germany - Hamburg for a period of five years and am ready to help and share with the refugees all the challenges that they are going through since I have also passed through them.
Am requesting you please to send me any address of any such organisation working with refugees in Germany - Hamburg if it is possible. Jacob Edieru, OT Student firstname.lastname@example.org" (21.10.13)
