Refugee children from Ukraine can stay in a summer camp in Leudelange

On Monday, July 18, LUkraine Asbl has opened the first term of its summer camp for refugee children. The camp is situated in the scout chalet Schwengsweed in the municipality of Leudelange. There will be three terms in total. 145 children will stay in Schwengsweed this summer. According to LUkraine Asbl, that’s less than 10% of all the refugee children from Ukraine, that are situated in the Grand Duchy right now.

The non-profit organisation represents the Ukrainian community in Luxembourg. And one of its goals is adapting these children to their new lives. That’s why it chose summer camp as a format. There’s no better way to spend a summer for a kid than among their peers. Playing games. Finding new hobbies. Making friends. Refugee children are no exception. They need a summer like this most of all.

The camp has a lot in store for these children. Sports, dancing, creative classes, history and ecology lessons, nature trips and volunteer work. Everything to help them overcome the trauma of war and again see fun, friendliness and childish light-heartedness.
