Recently, a meeting-acquaintance of all participants of the Ukrainian-Georgian project "Children Want Peace!" was held in the office of the charity fund "For my Ukraine".
The project organizers, parents and children were able to talk about all the details of the trip, get answers to all organizational questions, get acquainted with the accompanying psychologists and representatives of the host country. The head of the Georgian Alilo 2015 Foundation, Geno Tebidze, joined the meeting with a welcoming speech.
And it is very symbolic that the meeting of all participants of the Ukrainian-Georgian project “Children Want Peace!” took place on a significant day - Independence Day of Georgia.
At a time when, in the very heart of Europe, Ukraine and Georgia still feel the occupation of part of their territories by Russia, and since February 24, the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, aggression has acquired unthinkable proportions. Our countries continue the struggle for independence.
With this project, we want as many people as possible to unite and see the consequences of Russian aggression.
"Children Want Peace" is a social project for the rehabilitation and recreation of more than 100 Ukrainian children aged 10-17 during the summer of 2022 in Georgia.
Children evacuated from areas where active hostilities were occurred will be able to feel safe, take a break from worries and receive moral and psychological support.
And also to get acquainted with the culture, history and traditions of Georgia, which is friendly to Ukrainians, to develop "people's" diplomacy and find new friends, to strengthen the patriotic attitude towards their homeland and the defenders of Ukraine from both the Ukrainian and Georgian sides.
We invite everyone who cares to join the project and support this initiative. Funds raised by the «For My Ukraine» Foundation are used to cover organizational and travel expenses. And they will allow to provide rest for more Ukrainian children affected by the war.
We should be united.Children should not see war - Children want peace!
