These two young girls, from the bombed territories of eastern Ukraine, are supervised by the Plast, this very popular scouting movement in Ukraine.

When I take this photo, the young girls are busy making camouflage nets, under the benevolent gaze of Plast volunteers.

Children from the bombed areas are the subject of very special attention, and many volunteers keep them busy with fun, sports or artistic workshops. A way to make them forget what they have seen and heard. And to restore to them this part of childhood lost in a few weeks.
Nikita and her twin brother Artyom are 13 years old. They arrived from Kharkiv with their parents and pets within days of the start of the war. Faced with the intensification of the bombardments that hit Kharkiv, they had to resolve to leave the city in a crowded minibus provided by Ukrainian volunteers. Three days later, they arrived in Ivano-Frankivsk, where they now live in a small classroom with their parents, their dog and their cat.
Artem and Stefan are 4 and 8 years old, they arrived with their mother from Donetsk one
week after the start of the war. Artem and Stefan are playing hide and seek in the clothes collected by the Harmony Shelter association with a disarming carelessness.
