Day camp for refugee children from Ukraine

A day camp for refugee children from Ukraine has begun in Poznań.

This is the first of three week-long Kindernalia day camp organized by the One University Foundation.

The event will be attended by more than 200 of the youngest, who crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border after February 24 and came with their guardians to Poznan.

The One University Foundation has allocated PLN 103,031 for the project. The funds came from the tickets sale during the university's events: Great Barbecue, Integral and Polibuda Open Air in cooperation with Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań University of Economics and Business, Poznan University of Technology, Poznań University of Medical Sciences and Poznań University of Physical Education, as well as the student governments of these universities. The project is supported by the City of Poznań, which has made available the premises of the 8th High School and the Poznań Choir School.

The program of the day camp includes integration and pedagogical care of the participants. Many artistic and educational events are planned, and visits to best known places in Poznań, so that the children can get to know the city better. The Ukrainian children will visit, among others, the Gate of Poznań and the Poznań Croissant Museum.  They have already met the AMU Rector, Prof. Bogumiła Kaniewska, and visited the AMU Auditorium.

- We would like to thank all the participants of our concerts who, by buying a ticket, contributed to the organization of the Kindernalia and the volunteers, without whom the organization of the concerts would not have been possible," says One University Foundation president Wojciech Szalbierz.
