Journalist Patrick Strickland wrote an article for Al Jazeera about his impressions from the Hope School for refugees in Skaramangas camp, Athens.
On the occasion of his visit to Greece, for the Athenian premiere of At Home in the World, journalist Patrick Strickland visited the Hope School for refugees in Skaramangas camp and wrote about his impressions for Al Jazeera.
The Skaramagas refugee camp - near the port of Piraeus, not far from Athens - is home to nearly 3,000 Syrian Arabs and Kurds, Iraqis and Afghans, around half of whom are children. [...] the Hope School (is) a refugee-led initiative to provide classes for children between five and 13 years of age in Skaramagas.
Moving Docs, in collaboration with CineDoc - Greece, continues its fundraising campaign to support the refugee teachers and children in the Skaramangas camp. Please consider supporting the #HopeSchool : http://bit.ly/2cpi82n
