Vyshkil’17 – Day 8


On Monday, July 10, the campers participated in a CPR course that took up most of the day and resulted in all participants receiving their Emergency First Aid/CPR/AED Level C certification. Special thanks to  Larry LaGamba, our certified First Aid Instructor, for taking time and coming out to all the way to Veselka.

In the afternoon the campers enjoyed a game of soccer and volleyball before relaxing by the pool. After dinner, UYA member, Liza Tkaczyszyn an RNs, shared her story about the Canadian Doctors’ medical missions to  Ukraine to operate on soldiers wounded at the front in Ukraine’s east. The missions came to fruition thanks to the support of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.

Later in the evening the campers still wrote letters of support to our Ukrainian soldiers fighting the war in the East as well as our Canadian troops in Ukraine.
