Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center launches an extra shift at the seashore for Donbas children


Due to the large number of applications, Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center decided to launch an extra shift in Fakel summer camp for Donbas children. The third shift will last from the 9th till the 22nd of August.

"The first shift finished on the 25th of July, and that is when the second shift started in Berdiansk summer camp. The kids that were leaving and the newly arrived children were very happy with their vacation. Not only they could improve their health here, but also get distracted from emotional stress caused by the war. Despite the fact that registration for the summer camp has been closed two weeks ago, we keep on receiving applications from parents. That is why Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center decided to organize the extra third shift, which would allow 100 more boys and girls to dip into their joyful and carefree childhood for two weeks", – Iryna Sobol, Program Coordinator at Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center, says.

Children from 8 to 14 years old, both living in non-government-controlled areas of Donbas and internally displaced children that are temporarily staying in government-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, are invited for registration to the children summer camp. To confirm the child's place of residence parents shall provide the child's statement of good health, issued on the form on institution located in ATO area (for children living in NGCA) or certificate of displaced person (for IDP's children).
