On Sunday 9 October 2016 at 11.00 am CEST (10.00 am UK) I will be hosting an online Reiki share on behalf of Phone Credit for Refugees an organisation that provides vital phone & internet credit to refugees and displaced adults and children across Europe.
This is something that is particularly close to my heart as I had the opportunity to volunteer in the refugee camp known as 'the Jungle' at Calais on a couple of occasions earlier this year. I helped to teach basic English and French at the ELCD school and provided much-appreciated Reiki support to refugees alongside a fabulous team of doctors, nurses, paramedics and first-aiders.
With a date for the demolition of the camp now set, beginning on 17 October, there is an urgent need to provide a form of communication for as many people as possible. In days more than 10,000 people, including over 1000 unaccompanied children, will lose their existing make-shift homes and support systems. We need to provide as many top ups as possible over the next 10 days so people aren't left without GPS, maps, services and vital communication when the eviction comes.
The event is free to attend, but donations will give the gift of communication to people who are separated from family and friends, miles away from home in very uncertain and precarious circumstances. £20 buys a month's internet and calls providing a lifeline to keep recipients safe and connected.
For many unaccompanied children their phone credit is the only safety net they have. When the southern half of the camp was pulled down earlier in the year, the aid organisations such as Help Refugees and L'Auberge des Migrants say that many children simply 'disappeared'. Despite assurances from the French & UK governments, it would seem that there are insufficient places to house all of Calais evicted refugees, and there is a great deal of uncertainty and tension for the camp residents. Even if you can’t attend the event, please consider making a donation.
Your phone is now a refugee's phone (watch on a mobile):
How can Reiki help?
I hold space, whether right up close or from afar, so that healing may take place. This helps people to recover their balance no matter what situation they may find themselves in.
Soothe away life’s tender spots during an online Reiki session whilst making a very real difference to refugees at this critical time. Reiki is a simple and natural form of energy healing that beautifully complements traditional medicine. It is deeply relaxing and is a wonderful way to help the body relieve stress and tension, to accelerate the natural healing process, strengthen the immune system, ease mental suffering, restore sleep patterns, improve concentration & creativity and to strengthen spiritual connection.
If you are a spiritual or energy healer, no matter what modality you use, your support for the refugees will be particularly welcome over the coming weeks.
