The month of June has seen our Equal Opportunity Program in full action once again with two events reaching more than 70 children plus their families.
On the 5th of June at the request and initiative of one of our supporters we celebrated Mast. Arrman's birthday with new friends from the YMCA girls home project. Later on in the month we co-hosted our second program for 40 children from the CHIRAG foundation with entertainment and education for HardRock Cafe's 41st anniversary.
