On June 1, the Ministry of Preschool Education (MPE) organized a holiday for women and children returned from the armed conflict zone in the Middle East, the MPE press service reports.
Gifts, treats, creative workshops and a colorful show with participation of animators were prepared for more than 100 children of different ages.
“Children who have returned from an armed conflict zones will have a difficult period of social adaptation. Today’s holiday is a way to add positive emotions and take the first step to smooth out the traumatic experience gained in the early years of life. Only 3 days have passed since the children returned to a peaceful life, and we are already seeing the results: they are becoming more open and curious. However, much work remains to be done to integrate returned children into society. Until they learn to trust the world, much time, patience and love are needed,” the deputy head of the general department for organizing activities of preschool institutions and the strategic development of the MPE Shakhnoza Mirziyoyeva said.
Shakhnoza Mirziyoyeva talked with the returned women, listened to their experiences and answered the questions asked. She assured that the state will provide protection to every child, regardless of where he was born or where he came from, as well as provide psychological and social assistance to the mothers.
