Children sheltering for their lives inside bomb shelters in Ukraine are running low on critical supplies and have little opportunity to play, so Save the Children is delivering bunker kits to support vulnerable families. Save the Children is working with local partner Pomagaem to alleviate supply shortages and ensure children sheltering in bunkers can still be kids. The bunker kits contain toys, games and arts and crafts to promote play and learning. The kits also include mental health activities to help children manage their stress and find ways to communicate how they are feeling. The bunker kits will be delivered with food, blankets, warm clothes, water, medicine and other lifesaving essential goods in areas with active fighting and anticipating violence.
