AN ARRAY OF ACTIVITIES FOR THE CHILDREN LIVING IN SHELTERS OF CARITAS ATHENS

The children sheltered at the structure of Patission street participated with great zeal and enthusiasm in the first course on craftwork with the use of recycled materials!

This is a new activity for primary school children carried out in co-operation with an arts teacher who has already run a similar program for vulnerable social groups in France.

Specifically, the minors, beneficiaries of the course, are taught how to make decorative or household objects, employing clean trash, such as, cardboard packaging, bottles, tins and so on, in a view of increasing their environmental consciousness, while all their craftworks will be exhibited at school year’s end.

Moreover, the same Caritas Athens’ structure organized a free screening of the children’s animation movie “Lucky Luke” in Farsi, subtitled in Greek, that young viewers particularly enjoyed!

Finally, on Tuesday, January 23 several children and their parents living at the building in Ghazi area attended a concert under the title “Music Families” performed by the Symphonic Orchestra of the Municipality of Athens, in the auditorium of “Athina 9.84” radio station at Technopolis!

The program includes works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonín Dvořák, dedicated to the two largest instrument families, wind and string instruments. Conductor Michalis Economou will lead the concert.
