Children activities in reception centre
A lot of projects involve a refugee focus, such as this one in Markelo in Netherlands. SCI is a peace organisation and we believe people fleeing war should receive fair en safe treatment. Not to mention children. Yet, even if life in a reception centre is better than in a war zone, there is very little to do in the summer months. Most refugee children are not allowed to go on holiday either, so in many countries international volunteers come to them to brighten up the day a bit.
