Summer 2018: The FIFA World Cup
There are few things that bring people of all nationalities together like good football: and so, we watch together. On a daily basis, we have been driving up to the camp and setting up shop under the olive trees, where together we enjoy the craziness, surprises, and excitement that the World Cup 2018 has brought us so far. Regardless of what team is playing or what country you are cheering for, tens to hundred of people come together every day and cheer and shout in celebration, whoever scores. With another week ahead of us until the finals, the soccer spirits couldn't be higher!
21st of June 2018: World Refugee Day
Together with all our friends from the camp, we celebrated World Refugee Day in the grand amphitheatre in Old Vathy.

We enjoyed an amazingly impressive break dance show, our hearts broke during an incredible play about the journey of some our friends, and were surprised by an extraordinary 'skate show'. This day, today, and everyday: we stand with refugees, and keep fighting for a world where everyone is welcome and has a home.
