Although Children’s Day is every day in Fundacja Świętego Mikołaja, over the past week preparations for this holiday have been in full swing.
Here you can read what we did for the Ukrainian children over the past week:
- We handed over sensory books to the visually impaired and blind children from Ukraine who found shelter in the School and Education Center for Blind Children, Róża Czacka, in Laski.
- Children from Ukraine, who took refuge in Dębica in the Subcarpathian region before the war, took part in workshops and classes held in our Santa Claus Haven. In recent days, they visited the Doll Museum in Pilzno and created their own dolls during some puppet-making workshops.
- Last Saturday our team from the Saint Nicholas’ Haven in Mława prepared a lot of attractions for both Ukrainian children and teenagers. There were games, singing, preparation of fruit skewers, and, best of all, the gymnastics show performed by a young gymnast from Kyiv who has temporarily found shelter in Poland.
- On Thursday, with our favourite helpers from the ‘Paw Patrol’, we visited a hundred children living in the UN Refugee Support Center in Warsaw. Children received backpacks with small gifts for Children’s Day from us, filled with books, toys, sweets, and crayons.
- Our local partners from the Ivano-Frankivsk region organised an integration workshop for 13 children in Tyśmienica, so that they could meet other children their age. Some kids even created their own magic wands, made with the magic in their hearts, to dispel the sad spirits of war. In addition to this, everyone sang songs, played some interesting games and ate lots of cookies. The organisation of the entire event was financed by the Saint Nicholas Foundation. .
- More transport carrying humanitarian aid travelled from our logistics centre in Chorzów to the territory of Ukraine.
We are immensely grateful for all your donations to help the children from Ukraine, and we cannot thank you enough for making this possible!
