A brand new summer camp in Ukraine is going strong even though the war rages on … and it’s all about giving the kids something to look forward to in uncertain times.
Co-founders Yulia Grechka and Oxana Volzhina joined us on “TMZ Live” to talk about their summer program, the 7Fields Eco Camp — located in a safe part of the region of Kyiv.
The mental toll put on the children of Ukraine has been overwhelming ever since Russia began invading their borders — Yulia and Oxana knew something had to be done.
Their camp aims to provide 300 refugee kids with fun activities and psychological aid at no cost to the families before the summer’s over. They’ve been working educational programs into the camp’s activities, too — the older children will be able to attend anti-corruption lectures.
Since the camp is free, the team is looking to get donations for the program … those chipping in will get a letter sent to them, with info about the child they helped give a memorable summer to.
With tomorrow being uncertain for Ukrainians, Yulia and Oxana hope to give children the hope that a bright future is coming.
