Heidi went the extra mile
Medair gives me an opportunity to become a better person
“In August 2017, I participated in a service trip to Jordan with my company, Qlik Technologies, to assist with Syrian refugees. It was there I learned about the great work being done by Medair.
“I saw first-hand the despair refugees face when forced to leave their homes due to civil war or natural disasters. If I were in the same circumstances, I’m not sure I would fare any differently than the people I saw in Jordan. I could only hope to find an organization like Medair to help me if ever I were in need.
“I witnessed how Medair provides hope to those faced with a hopeless situation, and how they provide assistance with respect and dignity. The eyes of refugees would light up when they saw the Medair relief workers.
“The trip to Jordan taught me more about the world than my entire educational experience combined. Medair offered me an opportunity to see life through another person’s eyes. My goal is to end my life a better person than I entered it, and Medair gives me an opportunity to become a better person.”
Heidi raised over CHF 4 700 on behalf of Medair towards her service trip to Jordan. Meanwhile, her daughter Malia selected Medair as her service organisation to study, support, and sponsor for a 7th grade school project. She was able to raise nearly CHF 730. A very impressive family achievement!
