25 children who are clients of the Together—Stronger Centre for Social and Psychological Support for the Children of Labour Migrants returned from summer camp in the mountain village of Strilky (L’viv region) where they spent an unforgettable 10 days.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve had such a great vacation,” said 15 year old Yura. “I’ll remember these 10 days, that I spent with friends, for the rest of my life!” Other campers felt the same way because the camp allowed them to travel, play games and organize competitions while simultaneously addressing their spiritual needs. Daily prayers were an integral part of the camp’s program.

International migratory processes, caused by many socio-economic factors, have a significant impact on contemporary Ukrainian society. Labour migration has many negative consequences. One of them is children experiencing social abandonment.
