From El Altillo to Croacia

21st February 17

Over the last several months students in LAUDE El Altillo school have collaborating with various Refugee Aid groups. The students from bachillerato have been closely collaborating with AYS-Are You Syrious (Croatia) and Ospiti en Arrivo (Italy) to help out those who are arriving to Europe with nothing.  In November, students collected, organized and sent hundreds of jackets, scarfs, hats, and gloves to refugees passing a very cold winter in northern Italy. In January, a beautiful initiative came from the students who collected funds at the International Day they organized. The money has helped AYS create a classroom in Porin asylum centre in Zagreb where the AYS volunteers work with schoolchildren every day to help them with the most important steps they are making as young asylum seekers in Europe — their education.
