In May a website offering handcrafted items made with the hands of children from Kalinovka Childrens Home started its active work. A bead cherry tree has already been sold and an order has been placed for field bindweed. If you would like to make your apartment look pretty with a masterpiece children make with their hands, don't miss your chance and visit the website!

Thanks to the help of a local volunteer, in May children made two trips to the pond (they keep saying its a sea). Actually, many of them went or will go to the seaside in June. But to make them happy, a pond is enough as it is a rare opportunity to get outside at least for a couple of hours. When going to the pond, children often ask if there are any wolves in the neighborhood and if they can touch the cows eating their grass nearby, though they are afraid of them. But they are very curious as well as all any other children.





Last month, 5 profiles of Kalinovka children were placed at the website of the Foundation. Besides, 16 profiles have been placed on one of international adoption websites. We hope with all our hearts that some of them will at last find their families this year!

Instructors activities:

Valentina K. initiated additional classes with Dima S. from her group. Another instructor Sophia Sh. did mathematical exercises and logic problems with children from the same group. Besides, children from Sophias group read short stories with the instructor and then retell them.

Starting from May, Raisa G. started working with bedridden children. In this group, Raisa with Vlad O. and Tanya K. study things through the sense of touch as both the boy and the girl are not able to see since their birth.

Natasha P. also works with blind Ruslan V. from her group who learns items by touching them and repeats their names after the instructor. Besides, Larisa K., Katya V. and Vladik K. from Natasha's group help laying the table and place all the dishes on their own.
