Twenty-seven children from the Kupiansk community were sent to Poland for vacation, and children from Izium went on holiday to Latvia.

As part of the Memorandum on cooperation program between Kupiansk and Pruszcz-Gdańsk, fosterlings from the family-type orphanages and children from the Kupiansk community went to the Polish city for rehabilitation.

“Today, 27 children are going to Poland for recovery and recreation. We hope that there will be more such projects and our children will be able to regain their strength thanks to such trips. After all, the Kupiansk community is among the most affected by Russian aggression,” said Yevhen Ivanov, deputy head of Kharkiv Regional Military Administration.

Children are accompanied by adults.

“Moreover, we are planning another trip to Poland at the end of August. Now we are forming delegations and are looking for opportunities to join new projects,” said Andrii Besedin, head of the Kupiansk City Military Administration.

According to Izium Vice Mayor Volodymyr Matsokin, children from Izium went for recreation to Latvia, the sister city of Tukums.

“Today, another delegation of children from the Izium region is going on vacation. This time to friendly Tukums (Latvia). Yesterday, I spoke with the city’s mayor, Mr. Gundars Vaza. He promised a bright and unforgettable vacation for the little residents of Izium, whom he will take care of personally,” he said.

During the trip, children will go on various excursions, get healthy, do sports, and develop creativity.
