The Manitoba Government is Contributing Funds Towards Ukrainian Newcomers Through a Summer Day Camp.

Ukrainian refugees in Manitoba are supported very well to increase their morals after what they have been through. The Manitoba government is hosting multiple events and different things for Ukrainian refugees in Manitoba. One such event is a summer day camp for refugee children.

This summer, the Manitoba government is giving more than one-hundred-thousand dollars to the Ukrainian Canadian Congress. The money will be used for a nine-week camp for approximately one-hundred-twenty Ukrainian newcomers.

This camp will offer culturally appropriate, trauma-informed mental health care for all children. The camp will focus on different things, such as education, literature, cultural and recreational activities, and so much more. They will also be teaching English literature and language.

“As part of our ongoing, whole-of-government commitment to provide a full continuum of support to newly arrived Ukrainians, we are pleased to partner with Manitoba’s Ukrainian community to provide a positive opportunity for families and their children as they establish new roots here in Manitoba, first and foremost, kids need to be kids. This camp will allow them to regain a sense of normalcy after the unimaginable loss and suffering they have endured.” Premier Heather Stefanson said about the camp.

Moreover, Arina Chychul, a camp participant, has said, “Every day we do a lot of outdoor activities, art and craft, and learn some new facts about Canada and the English language,” when asked about her opinion and feelings about this camp.

Manitobans are doing their best to help Ukrainian newcomers feel like they’re home. In addition to government support, the Manitoba Ukrainian Community is supporting the camp and pitching in funding. All Manitobans are helping Ukrainians until they get back on their feet.
