"@unicef responded in Poland and in the region by ensuring that teams of psychologists are available to help mothers and children at the Blue Dot centres, the Child Development centres, the Education Hubs and other touch points." 

She continued: "One of the most effective tools in helping children regain a sense of normalcy is playful interaction.  It sounds so simple, but through play, children can find safety and respite, while also being able to explore and process what is happening in their lives.

"The kids I met on this mission love working with art. Coffee beans, salts and regular household items are used for art therapy and sensitivity therapy. 

"Another example is handmade dolls that I was gifted by Ukrainian children at each Programme I visited with Unicef.  Each is unique and is believed to have the power of protection, which  these children really need right now as the war is upending the lives and futures of the country's 5.7 million school aged children."
