Refugee Children are suffering silently and equally we hope we can make
a small difference to some by setting up fund raising events to purchase pop up play tents to offer a safe place for
the refugee children to play amidst all the chaos,and horror that they have endured which will help the children to forget and hopefully overcome much of the terrible trauma that they have suffered silently. The pop up play tents will be supervised by mothers and teachers daily, thus allowing the children to play,create music, paint,enjoy craft making, puppet making and just be
children within a space of their very own safely.The first pop up play tent will be taken
over to Lesvos initially,where I will be installing it with family and
friends,ensuring that we set them up directly with no middle men or additional costs. The volunteers have been
forthcoming, but we would always need more, puppeteers, artists, singers, musicians,
crafters,to make a commitment to offer their time and skills.I will be going back with my two
teenage children and friends with families to set up the pop up play tents with the donations
that we receive by the end of March.If you are interested in getting involved in a local fund raising event to help us to purchase the pop up play tents and play materials please get in touch we welcome all the help and support we need to make it happen and make the difference to a child's life.
