PAST INITIATIVES

Over the course of the years, we organize numerous public initiatives to promote the values of hospitality and peaceful coexistence. Through these events, which are an important aspect of our work, we publicize our activities, give a voice to the refugees and asylum seekers, create opportunities for discussion and exchange to foster dialogue between the host population and those given reception, and conduct fundraising campaigns to make our activities sustainable.
