September Update: What did we do in September?
Maybe it wasn’t clear outside the window that autumn already come, but we definitely felt it 💯
September flew by very quickly, and here is what we managed to do during this time:
🏻 The month began with the provision of school stationery for children. By the way, it is education without new notebooks, pens and other accessories? For 585 IDP children (96 of whom are children from 4 shelters and the Mother and Baby House), the school year began with new pages and new emotions ✏️📚
🏻 We conducted 8 children’s events and together with 163 children created memories about:
🧒🏻 Cinema travels together with your favorite @planetakino and cartoons “Ninja Turtles” and “Marmaduke”. Traditionally, at these meetings, we were crunching our favorite popcorn and making new friends 📽️🎞️
👧🏼 Real space adventures. No, not yet in outer space, but in the @planetarium_noosphere. But emotions were no less impressive: an interesting excursion, interactive exhibits, space secrets, and an educational film. And how can you not want to become an astronaut after that? We don’t know either, and that’s why we saw with our own eyes the future generation of conquerors of the universe🚀🪐
🧒🏻 Charity lunch together with @mcdonaldsukraine, where children were able to distract themselves from the news and just be children, who only cared about one thing – what is inside the Happy Meal 👀
👧🏼 2 wonderful workshops on making soy candles from @aselisa_candles, where children created something with their own hands that will remind them of Dnipro, our team, and warm with kind memories for a very long time 🏻🫂
🧒🏻 Dived into the magical world of the Madrigal family during musical performance “Encanto” by @goldenkids_ukraine and enjoyed the world created by children on the stage for children in the hall 👭👬👫
👧🏼 Became a part of the all-Ukrainian Pano “Ukraine is the Eldorado of the future” by Pascal Wlsteland, which was created by children all over the country to remind the whole world about the war and the horror they feel today 🫂🎨
🏻 We finished with the group of 11 talented children from the “School of Little Van Goghs”, who are ready to conquer the art world with their masterpieces 🧑🏻🎨
🏻 We supported our smallest citizens during the “Babies” day. 27 babies received food, diapers, clothes and everything necessary to grow healthy 👶🏻
🏻 The Rise of Ukraine team, together with the German professional doctor Miguel Looft, conducted training on providing first aid to 17 people. Of course, we all hope that this knowledge will remain only a theory in our heads, but we still need to be prepared for any situation 💪🏻
🏻 Front-line assistance was handed over to our guardian angels in the form of 4 tablets, 10 first-aid kits and 20 turnstiles.
🏻 Our team members are also continuously learning to help even better. This month we attended two trainings: “HEAT” from Spearfish, “Livelihood Fundamentals” from IOM, and first aid training from German paramedic Miguel Looft 👊🏻👌🏻
Every day we work intending to help. Although almost all our efforts are currently focused on repairing of our HUB for the children of IDPs and civilians damaged by the war, we forget about our beloved babies and everyone who needs our help.
We build, repair, create, teach, develop, entertain and always believe.
We believe in Victory together with Rise 💙💛
