Speaker Date Topic
Anne Norona Sep 27, 2018
Founder of Y.E.S. (Yezedi Emergency Support)

Anne is founder of YES and a registered general nurse, currently working as a practice nurse for the National Health Service in England. Specialising in intensive care and tropical diseases, Anne spent time in a hospital in Haiti as a volunteer paediatric nurse for the poor between 1998 and 2000 before becoming a mother to her son. In November 2015, in response to the refugee crisis hitting the shores of Greece, Anne became the main recruiter of volunteer medics on Lesvos until the borders closed in 2016. Volunteering in both Lesvos and Idomeni Anne became close to the Yezidi refugees fleeing the ongoing genocide of their people. In December 2016 she began YES in response to the desperate need of displaced Yezidi people in Iraq. Working closely with Yezidi doctors and key workers in Iraq, Anne has managed to establish a wide network of contacts both in Iraq and internationally. “I’ve always held strong humanitarian beliefs and thankfully now have the opportunity to make a difference and to help the Yezidi people, one of the most persecuted yet gentle people I have ever had the good fortune to meet. I will do all I can to support and help them and hope to alleviate at least a little of the suffering so many of them have to endure through no fault of their own – just because they are Yezidi.” Anne was born and lives in Cornwall, England and is the mother of one son.
