Με αφορμή της Διεθνή Ημέρα Φιλίας στις 30 Ιουλίου, η οποία καθιερώθηκε το 2011 με απόφαση της Γενικής Συνέλευσης του ΟΗΕ, συζητάμε για το πως αντιλαμβανόμαστε τον «αληθινό» φίλο, τι αξία δίνουμε σε μια τέτοια ανθρώπινη σχέση και τί νόημα μπορεί να δώσει ένας τέτοιος άνθρωπος στη ζωή μας. Υπέροχη μουσική συνοδεύει την εκπομπή μας όπως πάντα! Μείνετε συντονισμένοι στο Ράδιο Πικραλίδα του Δικτύου για τα Δικαιώματα του Παιδιού, με  [ Read More ]

But the world is moving, and not standing still; some children, members of our  [ Read More ]

A letter to Mrs Merkel

Posted by thomas hiotis on August - 3 - 2017

I am writing this letter hoping that the wings of the “Migratory Birds” will carry it over the closed Balkan borders and deliver it into your hands.  I’m not sure whether you will actually welcome this greeting, because I am an Afghan girl and perhaps I deserve to be deported, even though my country is in the worst possible situation. However, I would ask you to read my letter and  [ Read More ]

12 months

We have been living in the refugee camp for almost a year.  The problems haven’t yet brought us to our knees because hope grows inside us, just like the plants we planted in our yard.  But I am tired, I want a change and I want to feel happy. When we first came to the camp, we lived in tents.  It wasn’t possible to have a small garden for planting,  [ Read More ]

My struggle from Afghanistan to here…

Posted by thomas hiotis on August - 3 - 2017

My name is Feteme and I am a 13 year old girl from Afghanistan.  My story begins in Kunduz, a city in Afghanistan.  We had a lot of problems there.  Women in my country are denied many basic rights such as the right to study or work.  Women are often abused and treated with indignity. According to our culture girls should get married at the age of 15 or 16,  [ Read More ]

On Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May the newspaper team of “Migratory Birds” together with Network for Children’s Rights attended the 14th Thessaloniki International Book Fair. In theory, this was a work-related trip, but for us it was also recreational. The scenery throughout the train journey was very beautiful.  The journey took six hours and as soon as we arrived, we went to the house where we would be staying  [ Read More ]

Security equals luxury- by Sara Hossaini

Posted by thomas hiotis on August - 3 - 2017

I want those who believe there is no war in Afghanistan to explain to me how my father was killed. Why were we orphaned? Why do I not have a father? If my country is safe how can people be killed every hour of the day? Why can’t children go to school and why do explosions happen daily? Why are so many other children becoming orphans? The only thing I  [ Read More ]
