For a second consecutive year, 24MEDIA took part in an ActionAid Hellas mission in support of social awareness actions. 24 ActionAid foster parents from Greece and Cyprus participated in a unique integration trip to this year’s destination, Tanzania. During the 6-day trip, the foster parents had the opportunity to stay with families and children supported by ActionAid on the island of Mafia in Tanzania.
Christos Chatziioannou from 24MEDIA and the photographer Nikos Mastoras were among the foster parents and they provided daily coverage and photographs from the mission through the exclusive column “Tales from Tanzania” on News 24/7. The purpose of the daily blog was to inform the Greek public of ActionAid’s extensive actions in the area and to provide insight into the way of life of the people of the African country, in a direct and substantial way through illustrated articles.
Christos Chatziioannou, Head of Native & Branded Content for 24MEDIA stated “Each journey with ActionAid Hellas, leads us to believe even more in the purpose and work of the organization. Needs are very different in different corners of the world and only by living under the same roof with a family from Africa, Asia or South America does one understand the extent to which being a foster parent helps make the world a better place”.
