This summer has been very fruitful – a lot of “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” therapy course have been held. Many children rested in summer camps where they could improve their psychological state by learning healing and self-help techniques. The camps were held in Kyiv region, Zakarpattia region, Ivano-Frankivsk region, Khmelnytskyi region. And no matter what was the name of the camp – “Caramel” or “Gala Camp”, “Lisova Pisnia” or “Litokryl” – they had everything you need for a wonderful vacation: merry counselors and sensitive psychologists, quests and discos, guided tours through picturesque Ukraine and delicious food, and most importantly friendships and communication. And calmness has been trendy this summer. It is what almost all children talked about, what they all wanted, and what we all lack.

In total, during the summer in cooperation with camp partners, 1,400 children attended “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” therapy sessions as part of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project. Half of them came from the de-occupied territories of Ukraine or live in difficult life circumstances. The therapy courses were conducted by project psychologists: Khrystyna Kravchenko, Leyla Kravchenko, Daria Tretyak, Marharyta Polyakova, Hanna Shevchuk, Maryna Gudkova, Olha Posternak, Yulia Barbukh, Maya Oliynyk, Tetyana Khamelyuk, Tetyana Hordiy, Kateryna Sukenyk, Larysa Sushko, Tetyana Solovei, Maria Shabalina, Bohdana Napleta, Serhii Serheyev, Yana Serheyeva. Iryna Sukhova, the leader and chief psychologist of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project provided supervision support for the team.

The camps were held thanks to the financial support of our partners – the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF), the OutcomesX social outcomes marketplace and UBS Optimus Foundation.
