During a conference entitled “Beyond Emergency Aid: Long-term Integration Strategies for Syrian Refugees” hosted by Ernest Maragall MEP at the European Parliament and reported by the well-known Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah, the Maya Foundation presented “Project Lift” – an NGO based in Turkey that has been helping traumatised Syrian children through art, dance and music.

EFD Executive Director Roberta Bonazzi moderated the event, stressing how important it is to support refugee children in order to provide them with a safe environment, immune to any kind of radicalisation.
Afzal Khan MEP was the keynote speaker. Also present was Ayse Uzer, deputy permanent representative at the Turkish delegation to the EU.
