Project Spotlight: Summer Camp for Ukraine’s Disadvantaged Families
The Fellowship | August 29, 2017
The Fellowship-supported Alumim children’s home is an organization that helps children from dysfunctional or disadvantaged homes in Ukraine. Their staff of teachers and mental health professionals help ensure all the children that visit their facility are taken care of emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
This summer, the Fellowship-supported Alumim children’s home in Zhytomyr, Ukraine hosted a day camp for mothers and their children from disadvantaged families. They scheduled activities and classes that explained IT and cyber security, which was especially relevant to the older children. The camp was completely free of cost and allowed mothers to have quality time with their children.
This quality and relaxation time is very important, especially for those from low income backgrounds. We feel so proud to support this organization that does amazing work to help children and their families in the former Soviet Union!
