New Acropolis once again visited the orphanage at Doganovo.  On this occasion the volunteers, who cooperate with this institute on a monthly basis, prepared a theatre workshop based on popular fairytales.

At the start, the children are enthused with a warming up exercise where they rehearse their parts.   Afterward, teams of directors and children/actors are formed, and before acting each team does its own rehearsal.  In the photos we can see what the talented youngsters  accomplished after much work and rehearsing.

Acción social en la comunidad de lo Salgueiro en Rio de Janeiro

Towards the end of June, New Acropolis volunteers in Tijuca began a social work campaign in the Salgueiro community.  In cooperation with the Leo XIII Foundation, legal assistance was initially given to a great number of people who needed documents such as marriage certificates, identity certificates, etc.  Another cooperating entity in this area was the Hélio Alonso Law Faculty.

In the health area, the activities consisted of presenting informative lectures on diseases such as AIDS and how to prevent them.  In addition, there were individual check-ups with doctors and psychologists to answer all their questions.  Physical therapists also helped out.

Last June, Europe experienced the worst flooding in recent decades.  At least 20 lives were lost and tens of thousands of people had to leave their homes.  The river Danube was at the highest level ever on record in Hungary, so authorities and volunteers were using all resources to prevent the flooding of towns and cities near the river.

New Acropolis volunteers participated together with other teams in Gyor and Budapest on the days when most help was needed.  50 volunteers in total participated in building embankments to reinforce flood defenses and in the necessary evacuation of cities and towns.

Medellin continues to organize theme nights filled with the music and food of the culture chosen for that night.  Last June it was the Celtic culture’s turn.  This was a new presentation which generated great expectations among the audience.

The Celtic musical group Valar enlivened this special night with its melodious songs which ended with the audience dancing.  In addition, the food was surprising:  Rye bread with a mix of blue cheese and crème cheese as an appetizer, and as the main course, Trimelstown roast sirloin, which is sirloin roasted with fennel, whisky and wine, accompanied with steamed carrots and green peas with a bit of butter;  purée with couscous and parsley, and as the beverage, a refreshing honey water with a mint aroma; and as if that was not enough, the dinner closed with the dessert, ‘Chranachan’ made with oatmeal, almonds, honey, red fruit and whisky.
