Mohammed Nour talks movingly to co-founder John about his journey from the tragedy of Aleppo, dealing with smugglers to get into Greece with his family, being stuck in a camp for nearly 2 years until finally getting a chance to realise his dreams in Switzerland.
We met Mohammed Nour, now aged 22, and his inspirational family in Alexandreia camp in Greece and theirs is a story of extreme loss and hardship, strength and resilience.
He talks about the traumatic events that forced them to leave, dealing with smugglers to get into Greece, and the privations and indignities of a refugee camp. But now they are rebuilding their lives and he talks about his strong desire to be independent and to continue saving others' lives.
