I am the founder and CEO of the Swiss nonprofit Borderfree Association. I founded this organisation because I know what it means to be a refugee and to live in constant fear: I myself arrived in Switzerland as a refugee when I was a little child.
We have been active in refugee camps in Serbia for almost three years now and we help wherever our help is needed. The idea for House of Rescue was proposed when the Serbian government asked us to open a home for unaccompanied child refugees because they currently live in very alarming circumstances among the general population of the camps or on the streets, even though they are minors. These children are not safe where they are now: they are physically, mentally and sexually abused. It is imperative that they need to be protected.
This project is especially close to my heart because with this house we shelter those who need it the most: Unaccompanied refugee children. They deserve to sleep safe and sound at night.
