Let’s focus on the positive examples. To those who treat their fellow human beings with respect and solidarity. Among them, some decided to offer love and care to unaccompanied children, as foster parents.
“For us it was a one-way street to host a child found unaccompanied in our country. […] Fostering has been a procedure ‘rich’ in emotions, that made us better parents, better people”, says Zoe Kourounakou, who, along with her husband and their little daughter, offered foster care to a six-year-old boy from Iraq.
Doros Antoniadis and Angeliki Constantinides, with their two sons of 9 and 11 years, became the foster family of a 13-year-old boy from Syria. “We gave him love and we received love. I can’t think, understand, or even justify whomever wants to give these kids anything but love”, says Mr. Antoniadis.
Through METAdrasi’s activity Foster Care for Unaccompanied Children we have met dozens of unique people and it was our honour to cooperate with them for the support unaccompanied children. We wholeheartedly thank them all!
