In 2015, when the Scouts of Greece heard that refugees were arriving at cities and islands in their country, they travelled to those places and offered their help.

From assisting the coast guards, building tents in refugee camps, collecting and distributing food and supplies, cleaning the coastline to playing with refugee children, they offered help wherever it was needed.

The experience allowed them to engage with people from different backgrounds, allowing intercultural exchanges, cultivating understanding, acceptance and tolerance. It also made a lasting impact on the local communities, showing that peace is possible through dialogue.

To find out more about this amazing initiative of the Greek Scouts, read Andreas Tzekas' interview with UN Youth Flash here.
