Idomeni School

First day of school in “Idomeni Cultural Center”

We opened a school in #Idomeni. It was unbelievable. This is a huge milestone for all of us free volunteers. Many of the #refugee children and adults have never been to a school before due to war. Finally we have a bright and happy place for them to go to and learn to read and write in different languages.

We cannot open the border but we can help to make Idomeni a better place for all the people who live here in great uncertainty and despair. Thanks for each and everyone involved in setting up the “Idomeni Cultural Center“. This is really awesome. #LightenUpIdomeni

    Vielen Dank für diesen den Tag erhellenden Bericht. So brutal und verachtenswert der Mensch sein kann, so erstaunlich ist er. Aus nichts etwas zu gestalten, ich glaube, darin besteht die wahre Gabe von uns Menschen. Ich möchte gerne etwas spenden, auch wenn ich hoffe, dass über kurz oder lang alle Camps dieser Art wieder von der Weltkarte verschwinden. Herzliche Grüße, H. Pohl

    dank dir für diese tollen , lebendigen bilder .
    habe nach meiner zeit zwischen röszke und idomeni im herbst sehr viele berichte über die weitere zunahme der härten gegen die fliehenden gelesen , so dass mich der positive focus deiner fotos der schuleröffnung sehr gefreut hat .
    sicher auch für andere wichtig und stärkend zwischen den informationen über all die grausamkeit zu sehen , dass selbst in so ausufernd katastrophalen situationen neue lichtblicke zu organisieren möglich ist .
    dank dir und allen beteiligten für jede hand ,jedes auge , jedes ohr !
