In an interview with Polish state news agency PAP, Nina Mocior of PAH said that more than 5,000 children and young people would receive support under the charity's Pajacyk (Puppet) aid program.

Due to Russia's aggression against Ukraine, more than 5.2 million people have crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border since February 24, and there are currently 6.16 million refugees from Ukraine across Europe, according to UN reports.

“Among those fleeing, a huge group are children and young people," said Mocior, who is an expert with the Polish charity. "That's why the third year of the Pajacyk aid program has been dedicated to Ukrainian children and young people and their Polish peers. We want to help them integrate and adapt to new living conditions in Poland."

She added that Polish children suffering the consequences of the conflict in Ukraine and children migrating from other countries would also be able to participate in the classes.
