Acclaimed actress and rights activist Susan Sarandon, arriving directly from Cannes Film Festival, visited the Rathaus Wilmersdorf refugee shelter in the city where IsraAID therapists and social workers are on the ground providing training, care and support.
Sarandon met with local volunteers, attended a women's group session and opened a new table tennis room in the shelter generously donated by Stiga and supported by Sarandon's Ping Pong franchise Spin.
Sarandon had been active in raising awareness and responding to the refugee crisis in Europe. Leisure and play activities such as table tennis provide much needed stress relief for refugee children and youth, and of course, much needed enjoyment.
