Dr Anxhela: Refugee. NHS Doctor. Essential Worker.

Anxhela Gradeci is a twenty-five-year-old junior doctor and refugee from Albania working in a North London hospital. She’s currently on a respiratory ward treating patients with coronavirus. She never expected that her first year on the job would be during a global pandemic. "I want people to know how much refugees contribute towards society," Anxhela says. On World Refugee Day, we are proud to celebrate the essential contributions of refugees like Anxhela—during COVID-19 and beyond.
