In May 2014, MELLON began its cooperation with Olympiacos team. In the 3rd of May 2014, a group of minor residents of the shelter visited Karaiskaki and Irinis and Filias Stadiums to be informed about sports. In the 7th of May 2014 the professional football player, Ariel Ibagaza, visited MELLON where he talked with the minors, answered their questions and took pictures with them. Finally, in the 10th of May 2014, the children visited the Museum of Olympiacos. The partnership and the personnel of the shelter want to thank the team of Olympiacos, the volunteer Aki Demopoulo, Mr. Kosta Sakellari who organized the visits and collected donations for the shelter's residents and Mr. Ariel Ibagaza for his time and his sensitivity.
The Project is funded from the European Economic Area (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway), by IOM GREECE, the Fund Operator of the SOAM Programme
