BIC has joined a group called Let's Play (they are on Facebook)! They are a group of volunteers doing wonderful work at two refugee camp locations in Austria: Hietzing-Pavilion 12 and the Ferry Dusika Stadion-Notunterkunft. The Let's Play group goes to refugee camps and provides games, face painting, and fun for the kids living there temporarily.
Ways to get involved:
Sign up to volunteer at the camps! Our first trip will be Saturday February 20th, and then the 3rd Sunday of every month unless there are changes that are out of our control). Details to be announced each month).
What to expect
The activities include spending time with the families and children, reading, painting, playing games, doing puzzles, and language practice (German primarily, and English).
The third Sunday of each month from 2:30-5:30 at the camp (leaving Bratislava by car, bus, or train around noon and returning in the evening).
If you're not able to come, you can still make a huge difference in these children's lives. They would love toys, puzzles (3-5cm pieces), art supplies, games, children's' books with very basic German or to practice language skills.
You are welcome to bring your donation to BIC worship on Sundays and they will be collected and brought with on the monthly outings.
