One such Omani, who is featured in today’s #OmanPride, is Dalal Mohammad Darwish, who since December 2015, has volunteered to help Syrian refugees upon their arrival on the shores of Greece, as well as acted as an associate producer for an upcoming documentary film called Citizen Xenos.

Darwish, a U.K. born Omani is the first Omani to volunteer in the refugee crisis that has hit Greece.

«I moved to Greece in December 2015, with the initial aim to volunteer helping the refugees of war arriving on the shores. For a long time, a Greek friend of mine, Valia Charalampidou had encouraged me to do so. She embarked on a mission to document stories from the ground and I was immediately part of the team,» said Darwish. She added, «My views on injustice and my passion for humanity and equality motivated me to become a part of this independent production.»
