Brendan is new to The Worldwide Tribe team. Initially inspired into the crisis by Jaz's story, Brendan has been actively developing his role and place within helping where he can.

Brendan, a firefighter and former combat medic has established himself as a search and rescue worker. He has been overseeing the safe arrival of boats to the Greek island of Lesvos in December and in March with Dan. His work has also seen him stationed just miles from the coast of Libya, working with rescue teams in the Mediterranean Sea, whilst also supporting with aid efforts in his local community in the UK.

You can keep up with Brendan's accounts of his work in the refugee crisis and the people he meets along the way here.
