Ippo Bar presents a photographic exhibition of Dionisis Moschonas “ATTENTION FRAGILE” with pictures of the children’s lives in voluntary camp “Happy Children Happy Youth”.
The camp “Happy Children – Happy Youth” located in mount Pateras, near by Eleysina, a worker’s town 15 miles away from Athens, which has been a life’s work for founder Father Yorgos Pirounakis, manages for 75 years to support the children of immigrants and socially exluded groups. Each year, 50% of the children come from belligerent countries or those suffering from economic crisis. Every July in the small society of the camp, several volunteers, offering love and companionship, give without discriminations to children the right to express themselves by being creative through game and art. Unselfishness, the basic virtue of the volunteers is at the same time their motive power while the half of them has lived as child in this camp.
The exhibition was first shown in December 2007 at the cultural center of Eleusina.
