Caritas Athens joins Caritas Internationalis’ Global Week of Action in collaboration with the campaign ‘’Share the Journey’’, which Pope Francis launched last September, organizing a picnic at Veikou park on Monday June 18th, 2018.
Refugees will participate and share with locals their experiences through their long journey to Greece, their dreams for a better life and their day-to-day life in our country.
Laying their tablecloths, picnickers will embark on new experiences, sharing stories, dreams, and thoughts, whilst enjoying the sun, the beauty of nature, the company of new friends, the food, an array of activities for both adults and the young, as well as courses on laughing!
The campaign runs for two years and calls upon Caritas’ organizations and communities in 165 countries all over the globe, bringing together refugees and local communities to increase opportunities for a culture of peaceful co-existence.
“Let’s open our arms and our hearts to those who need us!”
The journey continues…
