150 citizens of Zaporizhzhia, including children with special needs, went to the Sea of Azov: to relax and get acquainted with the culture and traditions of different countries of the world. The project “Summer Camp” Around the World” to the Jewish community center “Mazal Tov” was implemented thanks to the victory in the contest “We are city”.
Traditionally, “Around the World” camp is located on the territory of the recreation camp “Yubileyniy” in Primorsk city. This is one of the few camps where conditions are created for children with special needs.
“Camp “Yubіleynyi” is the place where we were immediately met. When we first came there and said that there would be children with wheelchairs, the camp director agreed and have made especially for our children comfortable conditions when we arrived. There is a separate, accessible toilet and shower at the territory of the camp. In addition, the camp administration widened the entrance passage, in order to allow children to enter their rooms on wheelchairs. I would like to say this is so incredible! After all, people who want to help us do it not by word, but by deed. The fact that we have partners coming to a meeting inspires us even more to do the new accomplishments.
A competitive grant of 85 thousand UAH was allocated for catering, accommodation and partially for transfer. According to Inessa Nosenko, the main task of the “Around the World” project is to unite people: with disabilities, without disabilities, of different ages and different nationalities. Moreover, to show that each person can be not just tolerant, but sincere; and create a space around not like an inclusion, but like a surrounding of understanding and cooperation.
