Hi, beloved friends and fundraisers!
We’ve been working very hard during the last months to get the Polykastro center opened full time, and thanks to your collaboration now we even have our own little library! With the help of the GetShitDone Team, we refurnished the beautiful Community Center, a space which has around 100 people coming everyday, where they can have a coffe, chill out, play cards or just having some talks with the people around.
Summer started with the celebration of Eid al-Firt, the ending of Ramadam, with special activities for kids, a great dinner with live music, a football tournament and some presents (thanks to A Drop in the Ocean to facilitate it).
During the summer, once every two weeks we take the families from the community in Polykastro to the swimming pool, to refresh themselves and learn how to swim with a lifeguard. Our Science Fridays are always a success, and many students come every evening to the OCC Language School.
We’ve also worked with various international organizations in different multicultural and inclusion festivals in Polikastro.
Clowns Without borders with Tortel Poltrona and company came at the beginning of July. Volunteers from all over the world, the Sirian comunity and locals attended to the main square to enjoy this funny show together. Thanks to Payasos sin fronteras for this amazing performance!
This August we’ve also worked together with the Oddisey Project and other international organizations in the Routes Festival, which brings music, performances, workshops, games for children and adults and also some food for people from Nea Kavala Camp and Polykastro.
But none of these would have been possible without your support. Thank you for your drop in the sea!!!
