Easter paintings: from kids with love

 

"Traditions makes difference. The way you treat your past shall outline your nearest future". These seemingly conventional wisdom words could be naive unless said by Crimean Tatar Elmira. Along with 1,2 mln forcibly displaced from Donbas, Lunask regions and Crimea her family fled Crimea once faced humanitarian crisis. Children we met at the Easter painting workshop organized by NGO "Crimea SOS" cherish dream of coming back home. Most of them are entrapped into deadlock situation when returning home means exposure of their lives to danger.
