December passed in a flash, because it is a month of waiting for a miracle and faith in the light ✨
During this time, our team did not stop working and created a fairy tale for our little friends 🤗
We were able to go beyond the borders of Ukraine and became the organisers of a sensitive photo exhibition “The Price of Life”. The last point of the show was Bratislava. Here, local residents were able to see with their own eyes what the residents of the Kherson region went through. We are grateful to the Ukrainian Institute in Bratislava for their help and support in this important matter 🫂
In total, in December, we were able to make 847 IDP children happier, and this is a remarkable figure 🤌🏻
👧🏼 26 new artists graduated from our “School of Little Van Goghs”
🧒🏻 One space landing took place together with @planetarium_noosphere
👧🏼 We held one lesson on psychological resilience thanks to the Czech humanitarian organisation Man in Need. The experts told us about new ways to overcome difficulties and how to recognise and express our feelings in this difficult time
🧒🏻 We watched the animated film “Wishes” in @planetakino and were able to see a world where all wishes come true
On the eve of Christmas, a drawing workshop was held for IDP women, who were able to escape the news for a while and let their feelings flow. Thanks to the sensitive support of our craftsmen, each of them was able to create her own Christmas story with a Christmas tree and a fragile ballerina by her side 🎀🩰
And the main event of the last place was, of course, the New Year’s children’s party from Rise of Ukraine 🎄🎅🏻
Santa and his assistants presented a fairy tale for 750 IDP children.
They danced, had fun, made new friends and received gifts from our partners.
And they hugged a lot, because that’s what we organised it all for 😜
New year, new plans. So, hold on, we are already preparing something interesting 🚀
Everything will be Rise 💙💛
