Hangar1 turns sports hangout for refugees

The Straits Times, page B12 -

As part of the NTU WKWSCI overseas reporting programme Go-Far, journalism student Jeremiah Ong wrote about Hangar1, a project that transformed one of the defunct Tempelhof aircraft hangars in South Berlin into a 6,000 square metre hub for refugees and locals to participate in free sports activities and classes. Started by non-governmental organisation Tentaja in 2017, Hangar1 now sees approximately 4,000 visitors every month. Tentaja is also working on a project to gather donations for Ukrainians affected by Russia’s invasion.
