The third event of the Buddy Program of Caritas Athens was held on June 24th at the premises of the Greek-French School “Saint Joseph” in Pefki.

Eight refugee families (of which three were new) and seven Greek families (three new entries as well) participated.

Initially, the Program was presented with the corresponding video, and then everyone took part in an interactive game where they had the opportunity to get to know each other better, to talk and exchange personal details, to taste various dishes and to receive their gifts the Organization offered as a memento.

The Greek-French School has also donated English books to children of all families, as well as clothes to the refugee families

Representing the refugee families, Mr Saidullah thanked the organizers for the event, and particularly Caritas Athens, for what they were offering, stressing the importance of the Buddy Program, helping them to meet Greek people, create new friendships, and he noted that they are expecting great joy at the next meeting!

All new friends showed enthusiasm for this experience with the protagonists the children who did not stop playing casually in the school yard.
