The unaccompanied children of METAdrasi’s Accommodation Facility in Chios had a strong presence at the event organized by UNHCR GREECE to celebrate the World Refugee Day.
Using colorful threads, the children pinned their messages to the world map, while through narratives and works of art they outlined their difficult journey. Then, they shared memories and smells from their homeland, presenting traditional recipes from their home accompanied by information about the occasions in which each food is served.
Finally, the music came: with the invaluable support of Chios Music Festival, the children learned their first songs played with ukuleles and gave a special performance that received a lot of applause.
METAdrasi’s Transit Accommodation Facility in Chios is funded since June 2020 by EEA Grants in the framework of the Asylum and Migration programme.
