06 April 2020 00:00
A huge mobilization to celebrate April6, the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, took place in Zaatari refugee camp, Jordan.
From 31st March until 10th April, the 7 coaches of the “Live Together” program raised awareness about this day and mobilized over 350 families to participate in the #WhiteCard campaign.
More than 1320 people in total joined the celebration, sending a strong message of unity and solidarity from the refugees to the world.
The beneficiaries of the “Live Together” program also shared their stories behind the #Whitecard, highlighting how sport contributes to improve their self-confidence and physical well-being, making them feel part of a community.
This project also served as outreach opportunity, to inform a large number of families about the “Live Together” program and the possibility for them to participate in the peace through sport activities run by the coaches.
Through their #Whitecards, the refugees showed unity and solidarity to fight the Covid-19. All the pictures will be showcased in an exhibition organized in Zaatari camp.
