Children of ATO soldiers return home from Poland



Another group of children of Lviv servicemen recently returned from a holiday in Poland. ‘Dopomoha Armiyi Ukrayiny’ (Help the Ukrainian Army) informed Lviv Portal that parents and relatives gathered to meet the tired, but happy youngsters.

Many ATO soldiers have children. It’s great that someone cares about them, too. They had a chance to experience something more than their school days and everyday life, to see how people live in Europe. We are very grateful to the people who organized this trip.” said Vasyl, the father of 19-year-old Serhiy.

“I loved everything! The organization was fantastic, really top-notch! We played American football, went on trips, got acquainted with our Polish friends, learnt some Polish and English … In one word, everything was just great!” says Serhiy enthusiastically.

According to Ihor Stefaniuk, the coordinator of the public organization Help the Ukrainian Army, 24 children of ATO soldiers, wounded Maidanivtsi and low-income families spent ten unforgettable days with Polish youngsters in a summer camp at Kiczyce (Poland).

The previous group of children of Lviv servicemen and refugees from Crimea, who fled to western Ukraine (Halychyna) recently spent their holiday on the Jastarnia peninsula in Poland.

These trips were organized by activists of Help the Ukrainian Army and the Polish association ‘Pokolenie’ (Generation).

    God bless the Poles. Only through experience can people learn what it is to be free. Those nuts in Moscow so badly brainwashed the average Ukrainian that black was white and up was down.It willtake much time for a Ukrainian to get the initiative and ambition to fight for crazy beaurecrats who think the world runs on corruption. Its called stealing in English from the average joe.

    Thank you to Poland and those who helped organize this for the innocent children who should not have to worry about the evil and crimes being committed against their country.
