Scouts and Guides contributing to refugee support activities in their local communities in Europe (15): a story from Eidomeni, Greece:

As part of the many refugee support activities in local communities across Greece, members of Πρόσκοποι του Κιλκίς (the local Scout Group in Kilkis, a member of Ελληνικός Προσκοπισμός in the north of the country) provided large tents to the medical support team of Médecins du Monde Greece, in Eidomeni, a train station at the border to the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Some of those tents are now used by the refugee camp medical station while others provide temporary accommodation for refugees before they continue their journey.

In addition to this material support, many Scouts from Πρόσκοποι Κεντρικής Μακεδονίας (including Scouts from Thessaloniki and other Groups in the local Scout Region of the Scouts of Greece) regularly offer their time, skills and experience to support the refugee centre in Idomeni.”

If you are involved in a similar refugee support activity, let us know and we will share it, too!
