The House of Canada and the Americas will target children vulnerable to exploitation.
At first, it will house unaccompanied refugee minors, who are living behind barbed wire or in make shift shelters on the island. These children are innocent victims of the refugee crisis who find themselves in very dire circumstances, often lacking adequate shelter, food and health care.
In a later phase, The House of Canada and the Americas is destined to become part of “The Smile of the Child”network of homes in Greece which are well-known for their support to children whose lives have been scarred by abuse, mistreatment or other traumatic experiences.
The facility is named after Canadian generosity, while efforts are also undertaken to reach out to potential donors in the United States and the Americas.
All contributions to The House of Canada and the Americas project will make a difference.
