More than 60.000 people are stuck in Greece. They have escaped the war and misery in their countries and can’t continue further into Europe because the borders are closed.
The need of physical and emotional healing is apparent within the refugee communities. But at the same time, these families are in critical need of a roof over their heads, basic sanitation facilities and classrooms that help provide children with a safe environment and education for months, years to come.
Together with The World Wide Tribe & Armando Aid, 109 World traveled to Greece with a group of 25 change-makers to learn more about the refugee crisis, to hear the stories of the people behind the headlines and understand better how we can support them back home and become their advocates.
During our one week at the Oinofyta Refugee Camp we also renovated the Armando Aid school, repainting the school and all the classrooms. We installed new floors and some shades on the playground so the school continues to be a nice and safe space for the community to learn and most importantly, for children to express themselves in these extremely challenging times.
We are still fundraising for the school, as they need continued support to keep serving the growing refugee community. Here’s the Campaign if you would like to support our work and help us give refugee children a sense of normality and a safe place to learn and freely express themselves until they are given the chance to rebuild their lives and get back on their feet again.
