Through their observations and talking to friends on Lesvos, @a1publishers felt the need to create empowering social spaces where people can disengage from the bleak realities of the refugee camps. Their first garden is at OHF (One Happy Family), a community-centre thirty minutes by foot from Moria, an overcrowded erstwhile military base.

Pictured: Their construction began “under the careful eye of Faras, an Afghani carpenter who shared his many wood-working secrets with us! Ali (pictured) also Afghani—helped us paint and treat the wood, spending the day with a big can of linseed oil and many, many planks.” Also pictured: Migrant children prep the plant boxes together with @sensualecology.

As I was standing in line at the checkout in the supermarket, two people started hate-ranting really horribly about Muslims and refugees living in my hometown - aggressively, loudly. I listened to it for a minute, then I told them to shut their racist mouths and to think about what they just said. The woman turned red and whispered that she didn’t say anything, that it was all her partner, who just looked at me and started mumbling something incomprehensible. Their reaction surprised me, and while I surely didn’t change anything, these are the people who feel important behind their screens, but are pathetic when you confront them irl. 🤬 Speak up. #getempowered #antiracism #refugeeswelcome #endracism #speakup #pforzheim

There is no better way to escape reality than getting lost in a book, a story for a little while. The story of the brand new library of Habibi.Works itself is a beautiful one to dive into - find more pictures on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/HabibiWorks/posts/1523270824485003

“I’m Adnan, I came to the Netherlands in 2015 from Syria. At the beginning I was alone, and later my wife, Tahani and son, Karam (who is now 5) joined me. I left my wife and son in Istanbul for over a year and after what felt like a lifetime we were reunited.

I started translating for refugees since the first moment I left Turkey at AZC camps all over the Netherlands.

When I came to Hilversum I started translating at VWMN in Hoofdorp 4 days per week. I joined Vluchtelingenwerkgroep Gooi & Vechtstreek (VG&V) in 2017. I now work 2 days a week at VG&V and 2 days at VWMN.

I speak English, French, Arabic and the ancient languages of the Middle East. Also Acadian which is over 5,000 years old.

The best thing about living here is the system. When I first arrived here a guy from the city consulate gave me part of his house to live in – I was there for 7 months. I’m also very appreciative of Regenboogkerk (Rainbow Church) in Hilversum. The minister, Jurien and his wife, Adrienne invite me over every week and sometimes every day! They assist me in every field. I have lots of friends here. I’m lucky and very grateful.” -

Ik begon te vertalen voor vluchtelingen vanaf het eerste moment dat ik Turkije verliet in AZC-kampen in heel Nederland.

Toen ik naar Hilversum kwam, begon ik 4 dagen per week te vertalen op VWMN in Hoofdorp. Ik ging in 2017 werken bij Vluchtelingenwerkgroep Gooi & Vechtstreek (VG&V). Ik werk nu 2 dagen per week bij VG& V en 2 dagen bij VWMN.

Ik spreek Engels, Frans, Arabisch en de oude talen van het Midden-Oosten. Ook Acadian wat meer dan 5000 jaar oud is.

Het beste van het leven hier is het systeem. Toen ik hier voor het eerst aankwam, gaf een man van het stadsconsulaat me een deel van zijn huis om in te wonen - ik was er 7 maanden. Ik ben ook erg dankbaar voor Regenboogkerk in Hilversum... [Continued in comments]

It was an honor to have my first exhibition in the RiNo Art District last night. I've only lived in Colorado since October of 2017, but in a little over 11 months I was able to book a gallery in Denver. Words can not describe the joy and overwhelming thankfulness I've experienced since living  in Colorado. 
Tonight I got to see all the different places God has called me to and allowed me to share with other people. The stories from Lebanon, Greece, and Colorado will not be forgotten as I continue to pursue refugee work in the future. I'm reminded of a verse I received on New Years of 2017. 
Psalm 32:8,
