A startling 65,5 million people are forcefully displaced worldwide, many of whom lose their lives when embarking on a journey to Europe’s shores.

Being able to host an Eid celebration for the residents of Nea Kavala allowed our residents to relax, socialize, enjoy food from their own and other cultures, and dance the evening away. Muslim and non-Muslims alike gathered to celebrate the end of the Ramadan, showing us that even in difficult times, we can cross language and cultural barriers to create something amazing that can be enjoyed by all.
