Even if a child does not want to come back to school and sit down at a school desk after warm summer holidays, it is still better to be at school with your schoolmates than to be sick and spend the first of September in hospital. A holiday for such children who happened to be in hospital by perforce has been arranged.

The celebration took place on September, 1 right in the courtyard of the Zaporozhye Children's Regional hospital. Children on gurneys and hospital wheelchairs were taken outside so they could enjoy the sun, listen to the performers who sang for them on the improvised stage and take a delight in doing quizzes and games, the winners got the prizes. It was the day that the children of Zaporozhye will remember for a very long time!
