We made a project to create fourth summer camp for IDP (internally displaced persons) children, who live in Ivano-Frankivsk (Western Ukraine).
Purpose: organization of spare time activities and rest camps for IDPs (internally displaced persons) children and teenagers from war territories (Donbas and Crimea) who live in Ivano-Frankivsk region (Ukraine) including psychological rehabilitation with art-therapy, different master-classes and excursions to interesting places.
Funds will be collected by Malcolm Phillips. He is a citizen of the USA and will be coordinator of this project in the US. All hist available contacts to ask him any question you can find at this page: https://www.facebook.com/malcolm.phillips
All collected funds will be used to project Summer camp for IDPs (internally displaced persons) childrens in Ukraine. After receiving money Malcolm Phillips will send all money to account of Charitable Foundation "Lviv regional charitable foundation Teenager" using SWIFT system.
For realization we need 4820,00 USD. We offer you to help this children to have some rest, improve their mental and physical health after surviving war at the East of Ukraine. Any kind of help would be very valued and appreciated.
In 2016 we had first camp using support from Ukrainian diaspora in Canada.
In 2017 and 2018 we had second and third summer camp.

In 2019 we plan have camps from 8-th of July till 2-rd of August (The beginning of the project is postponed from July 8 to July 22. This is because in the modernization of the water supply system. There is no water in the camp now. We were told that it is planned to complete the modernization by July 20 And we still have a little more time to raise money for this project.)

Target group: the children of 3-14 years (still is under consideration) form IDPs families, registered in Ivano-Frankivsk. Total number of participants 60 children’s
The war at the East of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea by Russian Federation made them leave their homes and abandon their previous lives. They are refugees in their own country.
The state does not provide almost any kind of support for these IDPs. They met difficulties in finding place to live, social security, job, their rights are ignored.
Being busy all the time, parents have no free time for communication with children. They also have no money to spend time with their children at excursion etc.
When we had our summer camp for children some of their parents told us that we have shown to children during 2 weeks more then they have seen for the last 3 years.
Psychologists came to conclusion that whole situation with war resulted in stress among parents the same way as among children.
Children spend almost all of their time in PC, tablet, phone and internet and they are indifferent. They have almost no contacts with local children and other IDPs children.
