“There are children who come from families that have fled from Donetsk, Luhansk and the Crimean peninsula,” says Carmen González, member of Ven Con Nosotros, a Spanish NGO that has brought 45 Ukrainian children to stay with families in Spain.

Daniel Ramírez, a member of Asociación Asistencia a la Infancia, another Spanish nonprofit with a similar program, also says some children taken to Spain have been directly affected by the conflict in the east of Ukraine

“Three girls come from (liberated) Sloviansk, they recently escaped from the war zone, and are going to spend the summer with Spanish families,” Ramírez says. “There also are some kids whose parents are fighting at the front.”

The children spend the summer living with Spanish families, who cover all their living costs. During the months the children spend in Spain, they also have health checks, are vaccinated, and have dental checkups.
