Martin's background is in delivering shelter and associated functions, including water, sanitation and hygiene in emergency situations as a result of natural disaster and conflict. His deployments have included the Philippines and Malaysia as well as a number of placements in Africa including Kenya and Tanzania.
Martin arrived in Greece in early 2016 and became Camp Manager for Ritsona Refugee Camp, 1 hour north of Athens. During his time he successfully oversaw the delivery of Education, Transport and Recreation programmes. As a well respected member of the camp, Martin quickly formed bonds with both residents and NGOs alike. His depth of humanitarian knowledge and generosity of spirit made him the obvious choice to lead the camp management team.
Martin now makes up one of the 6 co-founders of The Timber Project providing a humanitarian response along the Balkan route.
