The atmosphere was full of joy and excitement, with children laughing and playing as they designed and crafted colorful textile dolls and drew pictures with crayons. The sounds of Ukrainian songs filled the air as everyone celebrated together, bringing a sense of connection and belonging. It was clear that the event had brought the community together and provided a moment of respite and hope for the refugees, despite the challenges they have faced
