CHILDREN DRAW PEACE


International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation beneficiaries received prizes for their drawings for World Peace Day. While the pictures depicted the peace with the child's eyes, the hopes grew in the name of making the peace sustainable.

 

The competition was organized by Association for Solidarity and Asylum Seekers and Migrants – SGDD/ASAM for the 21st International Peace Day for Syrian Refugees. On 24th of September, the activity was held in Necip Fazıl Kısakürek Cultural Center of Ankara Altındağ Municipality. Mrs. Margarita Vargas Angula, representative of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); Mr. Abdulkadir Canlı, Deputy Secretary General of Ankara City Council and Mr. Bayram Yalınsu, Deputy Head of International Protection Department, Directorate General of Migration Management and refugees participated in the event. Blue Crescent beneficiary Raghad Aboudeil and her family, Social Worker Eda Ayrancı and Sultanbeyli Community Center Coordinator Emrah Genç attended on behalf of IBC. Participants gave messages that emphasized the significance of peace in the meaning and importance of the day.

 

Speaking on behalf of the Blue Crescent Foundation, Eda Ayrancı emphasized the importance of sustainable peace, saying "Hate, hatred and chaos are dominant in a country without peace. Peace is not only remembered on September 21, but every day in the hope of life in a world where people are peaceful, happy and without war. "International Blue Crescentbeneficiary Raghad Aboudeil, third in the race, thanked the SGDD officials for their organization and Blue Crescent teachers for their efforts and expressed happily that I am here on behalf of my friends Nedia Çabakcıy and Lin Jibakçi who are granted for honorable mentions. After their conversation, the SGDD Refugee Chorus gave a brief concert of peace-themed songs. Afterwards, the award ceremony of the "Peace of the Child" competition was held to emphasize the construction of peace.
