Ole, olee, ole, ole! Ukraine is the champ! 8-year-old Bohdan sings the football anthem and draws the stadium where the Ukraine-Sweden match takes place. He usually watches football with his dad at home, in his native Sumy, but today the situation is different – the country is at war.

The whole family is now in the shelter for refugees in Truskavets. Our psychologists conduct art therapy classes there to support people affected by the war.

It’s sometimes easier to portray experiences with a brush and paints than to express them with words.  Drawing is a part of the children’s mini-universe. For adults this is an opportunity to buy a ticket to childhood.

Art therapy helps a person to feel safe for a while and be themselves. We are sure that Bohdan and his family will return home and celebrate the next victory of the national team of Ukraine very soon.
