Heroes cry too - Colouring book for children from Ukraine

Eurochild has designed and printed a colouring book for children dealing with the fears linked to the war in Ukraine. The book is written by a Polish child psychologist in consultation with a number of child therapists, traumatologists and PTSD psychologists and has been translated in Ukrainian. It is the story of Myszka escaping the war and Ryjówka, who hosts her at her home.

The books are being distributed in schools and facilities supporting children fleeing the war.
