“No one puts their children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land.”
These are our founding projects: We visit refugee camps, squats, and private houses of refugees to organize birthday celebrations similar to how they did them back home in order to give them a little bit of a sense of normality in their new life here in Greece. We plan to do this as well for elderly people in care homes or at their homes – but due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we are not allowed to enter these homes yet.
This is a project that we started during the lock-down period in March 2020, as we weren’t able to carry on with our birthday celebrations, and wanted to reach out to Farsi-speaking people safely who weren’t able to follow the Greek or English news. We informed them about the new regulations concerning the Covid-19 restrictions as well as other Greek news updates. This podcast has now become a part of our organization. It is not only a news update but also an opportunity for listeners to offer their contributions.
