The Hellenic Red Cross visits the Hellenic American Union

Nov 13, 2009

Adolescent students of the Hellenic American Union participate in an interactive presentation by the Hellenic Red Cross

Red Cross at the HAU 1

On Friday, 13 November, as part of the Hellenic American Union Student Loyalty Program, four members of the Hellenic Red Cross visited two of our adolescent classes to make a presentation entitled ‘Positive Images’. The aim was to promote positive attitudes among young people and the public towards vulnerable migrants. 

After a brief history of the Red Cross, they went on to present the difference between humanitarianism and humanitarian action. Then the students were asked why someone would leave one’s own country . One interesting activity was based on discrimination and diversity. The students were asked to put themselves in the position of someone who has moved to another country and to imagine their first day in class. What would they want their new classmates to do for them? 

The event was a successful one. The students participated and learnt new English terms, but most importantly, became more sensitized to why people would be forced to leave their homeland and how important it is to accept and welcome those who are different.

We would like to thank the members of the Hellenic Red Cross for the opportunity to attend this event.
