Summer camp in Charitable Catholic Society “CARITAS”

Our partners from the charitable catholic society “CARITAS” has invited the families of NGO “BelAPDIiMI” to participate in a summer camp for the second time. 12 families from 9 regions of Belarus (Bobruisk, Mozyr, Molodechno, Zhlobin, Osipovichi, Smorgon, Smolevichi and Minsk) spent unforgettable mini-holidays in the children’s centre “Caritas” from August 12 to August 18. The charitable catholic society “CARITAS” is the owner of the centre; children with oncologic diseases and children with disabilities can receive different types of support there.   

The centre is located in the forest, that means our families could spend 6 days in nature and enjoy fresh air.

The employees of CARITAS did their best to organize a comfortable stay for our families: clean rooms, 4-time meals, beautiful nature surroundings, fresh air, swings, slides and trampolines and a specious summer house.

All 6 days were full of different activities and master classes:

  • communication with a psychologist;
  • a master class on Ebru Art – unique painting on water. Both children and parents enjoyed paper marbling;
  • a master class on sculpting with modeling clay. Everyone demonstrated their creativity;
  • drawing with crayons on asphalt.

Apart from that, excursions were organized to Minsk:  

  • Minsk zoo and dolphinarium;
  • Children’s railway.

Clowns were invited to play games with children and parents. Smiling faces, sparkling eyes – the clowns made everyone happy.

Children and their parents will remember this summer camp organized in the centre “Caritas”, hospitality and interesting activities organized for the participants. CARITAS presented us a wonderful opportunity to gather together, to communicate, learn and try many new things. Some of the participants made new friends and started seeing the world through different eyes. Parents could forget about their everyday problems, mothers felt beautiful again.

NGO “BelAPDIiMI” expresses gratitude to all the employees of the centre and to volunteers. We hope that our cooperation will continue.
