Athirma celebrates World Refugee Day with Hellenic Red Cross
World Refugee Day yesterday (20th of June) and Athirma was at MFC to celebrate the day with children from all backgrounds.
Somewhere, somehow, somewhen, something happened...
Children listened a tailored made story describing the birth of the Multi-Functional Centre, and interacted with each other dreaming and deciding on what should be included at the activities offered from MFC.
With materials and all sort of crafts refugee and local children sat around one table and depicted their ideas on paper and mini-models of MFC.
Children should be the main designers of the future and this was our reward today; children living in the same city, regardless background, designing what is needed for this city through their eyes of Innocence and Hope.
