Goal of the Activity

This project is a response to the current political situation related to the war in Ukraine. By organizing such an event, we wanted to contribute to the improvement of the welfare of people from Ukraine and enable them to release their emotions and regulate stress by painting together. Children who were taken out of their homes had the opportunity to integrate with each other, develop their artistic skills and at the same time improve their well-being.
We managed to bring smiles to their faces and we are very proud that we were able to contribute to their happiness even in a small way.

Description

The event we organized was about painting together with the children - it was especially aimed at children from Ukraine to help them release the stress related to the current political situation in their country and the fact that they live outside their country. They had the opportunity to share their feelings and worries about the war with each other and with children of other nationalities.
Our volunteers together with the children met in the Poniatowski Park. For 2 hours they painted together (with brushes and hands) and managed to create 8 beautiful paintings. The children, along with their parents, were very excited about this activity. They all had the opportunity to spend time together and use their creativity to help bear the burden of their worries. All materials used in the event were provided by our section
