In cooperation with the Adana Metropolitan Municipality, the IOM-run Adana Migrant Coordination and Harmonization Centre held a “Picnic in Nature” activity for 65 children. The activity, aimed to promote social cohesion among participants of various nationalities, began with a question-and-answer session, moderated by the education consultant, in which participants provided feedback on their expectations for the upcoming school year, followed by a clown show, where the participants performed various activities like tug-of-war, pantomimes, and dances.
