For the 11th time, children with eyesight impairments were delighted to join "The Miracle of Cognition 2022" Camp that was organized and managed by Klaipeda Senamiesčio Rotary Club in cooperation with Klaipeda Eyesight Developmental Center and other helpers, supporters, and friends.
Biggest number ever - 88 children, and all of them driven by enthusiasm and motivation gathered at the Camp that took place at the homestead "Gribžė" located in the village of Kvietiniai in Klaipeda district.
We are delighted the 26 participants from Ukraine, that currently are facing the horrors of war, were safely and successfully brought to the Camp.
