The peace envoys have organized and will continue to organize a series of social gathering events with the title “Meet Your Neighbor” in a café called Karanfil in Berlin. The reason that they decided to choose Café Karanfil was, on the one hand, it is owned by a refugee from Turkey and on the other hand, migrants and refugees feel comfortable coming to this café as well as Germans and others. During these gatherings, the locals have had a chance to hear the real-life stories of volunteering refugees as storytellers. Seeing the participants talking to the refugees and understanding their experiences of pain and suffering at home and in the host community was a great step for the Peacemakers to establish an understanding and helping community between the refugees and the host society.
