Warsaw (Poland) -- Work camp in the Ukraine

From August 5 to 20 a work camp was held at a welfare center in the Ukrainian town of Zytomierz. Thirty Polish university students took part. The work principally involved cleaning and maintaining the grounds adjoining the center. The activity aimed at helping the students to learn in practice to give their time to others in greater need. In addition, through personal contacts and cultural visits, they had an opportunity to learn about the customs and culture of the Ukraine. A priest of the Prelature provided pastoral care for those on the camp.
