The Monaco Red Cross and AMADE Mondiale have announced the opening of a “mother-child space” at Camporoya, the Ventimiglia migrants’ reception camp.

Every day several hundred people in transit are fed, housed and treated here. For young children accompanied by their parents, or minors without families, the long journey as migrants is a real trauma, and moments of refuge and relaxation are rare.

The project consists in offering to the Ventimiglia migrant camp a space entirely dedicated to children in which they have access to fun and recreational activities. The Camporoya project will allow mothers to meet and socialise in peace and share childcare responsibilities.

“They will find a place dedicated to enlightenment and learning, where different creative workshops, games and various activities, adapted to the little hands of the youngest, will be held, including a junior library and a toy library,” said Corinne Clerc, in charge of the work of the Monaco Red Cross with migrants in Ventimiglia. She has been working with the team for several months on this project, which is the result of a partnership between AMADE Mondiale in its commitment to unaccompanied minors, alongside Terre des Hommes Italy and the Monaco Red Cross.

The child-friendly space has been made with the unwavering support of Italian Red Cross staff working in the camp every day.
