The Best Summer Ever!

 

With the war never far away in Ukraine, our Summer Camps are more important than ever.

They are a chance for children to be carefree and joyful, to play and have friends, and maybe for a little while, to forget the horrors of war. 

For young people like Sasha, whose childhood home was destroyed in the war and who cannot face watching the news anymore, it gives an opportunity to hear about a loving God who is close to the broken-hearted – who will always be with them, even when Summer Camp is over; even when the war goes on.

Please help us make Summer Camp "The Best Summer Ever" and change a child's life forever. A gift of $25 could cover the cost of a day's camp of one child. It would be wonderful if you could consider a kind gift to cover one or more days to pay for a vulnerable child to attend Summer Camp.

Russia's war and the impact it has on the vulnerable children in Ukraine.

The conflict initiated by Russia has brought about a profound change in Kharkiv, even affecting the realm of childhood.

 

Missiles rain down on Ukraine's second-largest city from the nearby Russian border, leaving mere seconds to intercept them.

 

With the constant threat to Kharkiv, the likelihood of these missiles hitting is high, and finding shelter becomes a challenging task.

 

In the interest of safety, school and kindergarten buildings have remained closed for nearly two years, leaving playgrounds deserted.

 

As the extensive war approaches its third year, aspects of life in Kharkiv are shifting beneath the surface.

 

Deep within the metro system, specially constructed classrooms run parallel to the platforms at five stations.

 

To adapt to the evolving circumstances, local authorities initiated underground school lessons several months ago.

 

Recently, they expanded their efforts by introducing preschool classes on weekends.
