Sports can be a powerful tool for integration, relief, health promotion and human connection. GFC is involved in the creation of Hope Team, a male basketball team created by Coach Kostas Eglezzos, with the support of Hellenic Bank, Cyprus Basketball Federation, and UNHCR Cyprus. The basketball team consists of 15 refugees and migrants and 3 coaches, all uniting their efforts to provide a safe space for migrant athletes to explore their talents, develop their skills and get the chance to learn about the Cypriot culture through sports. We believe sports can be a valuable vehicle to promote social inclusion of marginalized persons and other vulnerable groups and, therefore, this initiative will play an integral role in supporting asylum seekers and refugees.
