Recovery Camp for Kids

A highly successful, professionally and humanely run Ukrainian charity, Sincere Heart has been organizing special one-day and five-day programs for traumatized children who have been displaced from eastern and southern parts of Ukraine under siege to Lviv. Their success rates are excellent and all programs are supervised by trauma-focused psychologists and staffed by trained specialists and volunteers.

The main goal of Recovery Camps is the psycho-emotional rehabilitation of children and mothers of Ukraine who suffered from the war. The program is formed and conducted by psychologists, animators, coaches, artists, trainers of sports schools, specialists in art therapy, artists and other interesting personalities. This approach is almost the only one that allows not only to provide psychological first aid in an unobtrusive way, but also to carry out systematic work with mothers and children on psychological support.

The Recovery Camps have been providing support for kids displaced from Ukraine’s war zones to safe havens in the west of the country. Thanks to you, UCAP has supported 51 camps in the last 14 months, hosting more than 4,100 children and moms.

The child psychologist trauma specialist we support has been evaluating every child that attends the camp and doing follow-up to make sure that the most traumatized children get the follow-up support they need. On average, nearly 1 in 4 children have symptoms of PTSD and are referred for ongoing psychological services. UCAP plans to continue our support for these impactful Recovery Camps for families.
