    In this latest episode I am joined by Dr Lotte Quereshi and Dr Lizzie Wilson, two junior doctors, who are volunteering with with Kitrinos Healthcare to provide vital healthcare for the population of Moria Refugee camp, on the island of Lesvos. 

    The camp was initially set up to house 3,000 people and numbers have now reached over 15,000. Currently there have been no cases of COVID-19 within the camp, but how do you socially distance in such a crowded camp? what about W.A.S.H? what is it like to work there?

    There are some issues with pauses during this episode due to a latency problem that we were having whilst recording remotely, so I apologise about this in advance, however I hope you will be able to listen to this episode, which personally I feel is very inspiring and important for us all.
