Our summer agenda is here!

Our charity organization, Flottafólk, is pleased to present its summer schedule for children and teenagers. We have a football course with Ukrainian coaches, a music course for the youngest children and a scouting course for children and teenagers coming up. We are interested in number of participants for each course. Please comment below “Football +1” / “Music +1” / “Scouts +1” (+1 = number of children attending)

We will be promoting each event separately this week. As always, our Children’s Center at Hátún 2 is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm where children can play and get breakfast, lunch and afternoon coffee.

Our facility in Neskirkja is also open as usual, where you can get clothes, access computers and meet Ukrainians or volunteers who are here to help.

Your community center, G8 at Aflagrandi 40, opens again after the summer with a wonderful agenda for everyone.
