Faced with the humanitarian problem of refugees mobilizing all European opinions, many Kiwanians, from North to South of Europe, did not want to remain indifferent.
The challenge is to find the families, to offer the children protection, assistance, care and continued education to avoid the perilous crossings of the Mediterranean, traffic of all kinds and to rebuild their country when peace would come back.
A first assessment:
So far, 6 of the 10 districts (including the provisionary district Romania) have adopted the project. The result at the end of the first year ending on September 30th is 47,122.03 euros for Italy and 34,458 euros for the Syria project. All in all, Kiwanis Europe has mobilized for its first year not less than € 81,570.03 for the benefit of refugee children and has therefore helped a significant number of children exposed to deficiencies and all dangers! A big thank you to everyone who participated in the project!
We are now starting the second year of the project: Refugee children always need us, if not more!
