During the COVID-19 pandemic, many children are spending more time at home than usual. Also kids are attending school virtually to maintain social distancing efforts. Spending time at home away from their friends and neighbors remains frustrating and boring for them. Moreover keeping them busy and occupied with social distancing activities is difficult while they're isolated from best friends and schoolmates.
In addition, in the current restriction of movements, children have constrained access to socialization, play, and even physical contact, critical for their psychosocial wellbeing and development. Hence, Green Sun Association keep organizing daily camp to support children in these difficult times and build their resilience is imperative. The Green Sun Association use simple tools to comfort and calm children, for e.g telling stories, dancing with them and playing games.
Besides, the association aims to help them to feel more confident and less anxious and to build happy memories for children in the times of covid-19.
