In Bila Tserkva, the Ukrainian Red Cross held a family camp to support families who were forced to leave their homes due to the email@example.com
Volunteers and employees of the Bila Tserkva city organization of the Ukrainian Red Cross organized a family summer camp “Mysterious Island” for the families of internally displaced persons. Families from Kherson, Chornobaivka, Lyman, Kramatorsk, Kyiv, Kharkiv and other cities have their own stories of evacuation, escape from war and the beginning of life in new, safer, settlements of Ukraine. But they all came together for a few days at the camp to relax, socialize, learn useful skills and support their mental health.
The camp program included creative workshops, including aquatype, family quest, football tournament, sports competitions for children and adults, swimming in the river, cooking on the fire, watching movies in the open air and many other interesting activities. All this allowed families to distract at least for a moment from the events experienced and feel joy and happiness.
“This is the first time in six months that I’ve been smiling all day long!” said one of the participants at the end of the camp. This is exactly what our psychosocial support team volunteers are working for.
