Is there anything unusual in this picture?


Scouts and Guides contributing to refugee support activities in their local communities in Europe (19): a story from the island of Kos, Greece

“Do you note any difference in this picture?
You should not really, because it is just another meeting of Scouts on a sunny Saturday afternoon playing a game.
But wait? The children wear no Scout shirts, no scarves?
Yes! That’s because this is a very special Scout meeting!

In fact, the picture was taken last weekend on the island of Kos in Greece, where members of Ελληνικός Προσκοπισμός spent the weekend having joined other volunteers from local civil society organisations engaged in refugee support activities on the island.

The children in the picture are refugees from Syria and other countries who were very happy to escape hardship and boredom for a couple of hours and learn again what it means to laugh and have fun.”
