Swimming lessons are a release for refugees. They learn to overpass their fears: many had a very traumatic experience of the sea, with being in the sea for the first time when crossing from Turkey to Greece and nearly drowning from not knowing how to swim. Many times they have come to us asking for it, it’s for them a great way to get out of the camp, get a distraction and forget about their problems. They can forget about all the tensions in the camp and they focus on themselves for an hour.This class is a must for refugees in their daily camp life and we need your support to be able to continue providing it. The beaches of Lesvos are very rocky beaches with from time to time many sea urchins, so swimming shoes are a vital accessory for the swimming classes. Shoes provided by preferred supplier TerraMare.
