Eighteen children between 10 and 15, whose family members are fighting, have been killed or gone missing, will attend the camp on 10-17 January, the Lithuanian Centre for Children and Youth said.

The camp is organized to provide the Ukrainian children with a brief rest in a safe environment, attend a program with their Lithuanian peers and start closer social bonds with Lithuanian children.
