Posted by projects on Jun 06

Last Sunday, May 28th, SCI Catalunya participated in the “Trobada de nenes Elna i nenes Nael”, that gathers all the girls named “Elna” and the boys named “Nael”. The meeting, organized every two years, aims at paying tribute to all the families who decided to name their children after the Maternity of Elna, the institution dedicated to helping women exiles of the Spanish Civil War created in Northern Catalonia by the SCI volunteer Elisabeth Eindenbenz.
