Second day for Migrant Bodies in Rechnitz

Second day for Migrant Bodies in Rechnitz

Today we visited the regional capital Oberwart and had a public session on the main square open to migrants and local citizens. Afterwards we were given the opportunity to gather at the local support center for migrants to exchange experiences and personal backgrounds. We were very pleased to be be visited by the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation who are helping to raise awareness and relate the project to a broader spectrum of the community.

We will be spending the week with a group of boys aged 13 – 17 who have walked here from Afghanistan, Somalia and Eritrea. It’s been a great first day getting to know the boys and starting the work.
