❗❗World Refugee Festival❗❗

👏In order to celebrate the International Refugee Day, Emphasys Centre successfully collaborated with the Cyprus Refugee Council, for the organization of the World Refugee Day Street Festival 2022! The festival took place at Plateia Faneromenis in Nicosia, under the context of the project Engage: Developing Inclusive Integration Paths for Migrant Women.
🔊In addition to our main objective, which was to celebrate the World Refugee Day, the Street Festival managed to unite different cultures and races, but also welcome various organizations that share the same ambitions.
🎉A big thank you to Kiss FM (Cyprus) for supporting us by providing a live radio link, the Room for Hope and Ibrahim with his Djembe for their incredible performances and DJ Claudio for creating an incredible atmosphere with his music! We would also like to sincerely thank all the refugees, locals and NGOs for making this day a success, especially to the individuals that cooked for us and brought their national cuisine to the festival!
🙏Finally, we would also like to grant immense gratitude to the UNHCR Cyprus and the Δήμος Λευκωσίας for allowing us to organize this event in their premises and of course to our supporters and sponsors, the Australian High Commission, Cyprus, Alphamega Hypermarkets, Coca-Cola HBC Cyprus and KEO BEER.
