This month, I joined a group of professionals, academics, immigrants and enthusiasts to form a new charity, Full Options. The charity’s goal is to promote human rights and peace, and to help people reach their full potential. The charity has board members in the UK and Turkey and will focus many of its efforts on Syrian refugees in Turkey. This organisation stems directly from the conference I organised back in September 2017 on Syrian refugees and health, and many of the participants in the event are now part of this new initiative. Our first act, before we had even launched officially, was to collect clothes and toys from Scotland and send them to a partner refugee centre in Eskisehir.
