Drawings of unaccompanied Syrian children in Cyprus tell their stories

Metadrasi - METAdrasi CY Exhibition June24 9

The children living at a temporary shelter in Pafos provided us with the opportunity to take a glimpse into the lives, through their creations for the exhibition “Our imprints: Drawings by unaccompanied Syrian children in Cyprus”.

Organized by UNHCR Cyprus in collaboration with METAdrasi, the exhibition ran until the end of the month and stemmed from the artistic workshops that were implemented by our educator at the shelter for unaccompanied and separated children in Pafos.

The exhibition’s opening took place on June 20 on the occasion of the World Refugee Day, at the CVAR – Severis Museum. The event was attended by the Deputy Minister of Social Welfare, Marilena Evangelou, UNHCR Representative in Cyprus, Katja Saha, and, of course, the young artists themselves.

“We are here today to congratulate the children who created this project and through it expressed their dreams, their memories and their concerns. […] I want to thank these children who grew up suddenly but dream of a better future. The children who “hugged” me and left their own imprints on my heart”, said METAdrasi’s educator, Olga Paraprastaniti.
