Doing me duty in Rustki
Yesterday was an historic day, not because we get recognition for beeing the last people standing in de Brussels Refugee Camp. No It was me first Russian class, I froze because I was enjoying it so much. Finally a teacher who is 100% going for het job. Really it has been a long time since I saw this quality. Now its my turn to study and finally enjoy a language without really having to learn it. Just a moment of peace during the week.
After my class I left to the Brussels refugees camp, was tired didn't sleep for 30 hours. We had 3 patients. Easy fix translations, sometimes I have to be the bastard when this Iraqi refugee takes to much advantage of us. Who am I, let it be... It was just one of those guys who was living in the Refugee Camp, he was telling me he was waiting for his family who still was in Baghdad. He just wanted some attention, because he's alone here. And A giant bandage around his foot does the trick with the other refugees. Got a bit tired so took a nap, after 2 hours they woke me up for a emergency. Another guy who was hit hard in Hungary. He had problems in his belly. So we called 911. I went as a translator to the hospital with him after he vomited the clinic full. Once arrived at the clinic the arab nurses told me they needed me to translate. The doctor just put me in the corner. Some doctors think they don't need to talk with their patients. I call them vets, while I still wanne do this communication thingy.
The night passed by quitely. Everybody slept, even the guards, we are becoming an island in the refugee camp. All the volunteers left at night, they just don't get it that working there is not just the hype. Before going I was a bit doubting to continue next week, but the thing is I should sleep when I can. Then I still have a life besides the voluntary work. The time of doing my personal intelligence service for my own safety is making it only become more dangerous for me.
So lets end with an new idea, since the safety of the refugees is not guaranteed at night. This is a violation of there human rights.
