Who owns the initiative to create camps?

The summer camp is managed by Sport Senza Frontiere in cooperation with Atlantia, with the support of Caritas, Sant'Egidio Community and Save The Children Italy and together with the Embassy of Ukraine in Italy, the Department of Civil Protection of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Municipality of Rome.

Over 500 children attended summer camps organized by members of the European Committee of the Regions. The children study in both primary and secondary schools and are currently displaced within Ukraine. The camps lasted from 10 days to three weeks. More camps will be organized during the summer.

The president of the European Committee of the Regions, Vasco Alves Cordeiro, noted: "The war against Ukraine has shaken the entire continent, but the most it has shaken the lives of millions of Ukrainian children. European cities and regions immediately stepped in to provide humanitarian aid and host displaced Ukrainians, and are now working to support Ukraine's reconstruction. Some also decided to provide many children with a place where they will feel safe and participate in entertaining activities... I am grateful to all local and regional representatives who responded to this call and gave a breath of fresh air to hundreds of Ukrainian children.

Currently, with the support of the Committee of the Regions, five camps have been organized - in Rome (Italy), Nimes (France), Preila (Latvia), Greater Poland (Poland) and Maramures (Romania), as well as planned camps in the regions of Bavaria (Germany), Subcarpathia . in Poland, in Majorca in Spain and in the city of Gdansk in Poland.
