Located near the border of Croatia, OM is providing help for the refugees passing through in two local refugee camps. In Šid Family Camp we are running a 'Beauty Room' for women to come, relax, connect with us and each other and to have their hair or nails done. We also work with the children, organising simple games, playing sports, watching movies. In Adaševci Camp we have our ‘Tea Tent’ and run the camp laundry. You will be involved in providing drinks in the OM tea tent, keeping the tent area clean, working in the camp laundry, socialising with refugees, and sharing Christ’s love with them while respecting the rules of the camp.
You will work twice a week in the Family Camp, facilitating the women's 'Beauty Room' and planning simple activities for the children. You will have the opportunity to assist in the local churches with childrens church on a Sunday. The remaining time, you will work a few days a week with our team in Adaševci camp, assisting in laundry, working in our 'Tea Tent' and socialising with the refugees (this camp is all single guys) **We will provide assistance and resources, but we would love someone who would feel comfortable to run the 'Beauty Room' and childrens activities for the time you are here.
