TeamUp is a psycho-social support intervention developed by War Child, Save the Children and UNICEF Netherlands, which helps children in difficult situations to relieve stress and tension. Originally designed for Africa, Sri Lanka and occupied territories, agencies involved are now increasingly using sport, play and movement to enhance the lives of under-pressure young people. Inspired by the Peace and Humanitarian Action Fund, instigated as a result of support from Laureus Ambassador Andriy Shevchenko, Laureus partnered with War Child early in the conflict in Ukraine, supporting a programme in Poland helping young people fleeing the war. The project and Laureus’ partnership now also includes Moldova.
