FRIENDLY FOOTBALL GAME BETWEEN REFUGEES-BENEFICIARIES OF CARITAS ATHENS AND A GREEK AMATEUR FOOTBALL TEAM

A 5Χ5 friendly football game between refugees-beneficiaries of Caritas Athens and a Greek amateur football team was held on Saturday March 2, at the Panellinios Gymnastic Association facilities.

The involvement with football helps individuals to become active members of the society and to escape from the passive situation they are going through. The sport activity can serve them as an opportunity to meet new people, to integrate into the social fabric, to enhance their confidence and self-esteem, to improve their physical and their emotional health, and to be introduced to ideals such as fair play, sportsmanship and collaboration.

Caritas Athens would like to express its gratitude to the Panellinios Gymnastic Association for allowing us to use the stadium for free.
