Today was the first day that refugee children with their parents visited YMCA in Thessaloniki under the “umbrella” of the REACT project.We welcomed them in our facilities and we all had a quick tour in basic halls and fields which we will use during the implementation of the project for the sport games and activities.

In the first photo we are in the painting room and I dare to say that apart from children who look eager to start, parents showed great interest as well to participate in some introductory games (games for getting to know).

The second photo is a commemorative photo at the central gate of the YMCA in the center of the town: this could be a historical photo which semantically indicates that the YMCA is always close to social problems trying to help via a very specific approach, the human approach.
