Doctors of the World
We Skyped Mrs Qureshi's daughter who volunteers for Doctors of the World and had an amazing conversation with her.
Doctors of the world work in many countries including Greece, where Dr Aaminah Verity, Mrs Qureshi's daughter works treating refugees who have made the perilous sea crossing.
Dr Verity Skyped us gave us a great opportunity to ask her lots of questions. It was so informative to be able to get the answers from someone who was actually there and could give us first hand information.
On their website Doctors of the World say:-
