On April 2, 2018, Ivanka Babiak, Ukraine War Amps coordinator for Manitoba, hosted a special pysanka workshop for Plast Ukrainian Youth Association. Ivanka taught Plast scouts how to make pysanky unique to the Lemkivschyna region. This was the very first workshop of its kind in Winnipeg! Making Lemko pysanky has been a special tradition kept in Ivanka’s family. As part of the workshop participants donated to UWA-administered programs to aid wounded soldiers.

Thank you, Ivanka and Plast Winnipeg, for your hearts and soul!
