The November Report on the Works Done in Orphanages for Children and Adults with Special Needs
Attending a beauty contest and purchasing medical equipment as well as handicrafts items were the main events of November
Last month we bought thirty bottles of Resource Optimum protein supplement for bed-ridden children in the Kirovo orphanage who moved there from the Kalinovka Children’s Home.
We have been continuing to finance the petrol expenses for health care trips. Last November we spent approximately 1,000 hryvnyas (60 US dollars) for this project. One of our devoted sponsors provided little orphans in Kalinovka with medications, which cost 1,500 hryvnyas (90 US dollars). We have bought a new massage table at 4,000 hryvnyas (242 US dollars) for the Kalinovka orphanage.
We have spent around 1,500 hryvnyas (90 US dollars) for the handicrafts items. Besides, we have also bought 4 kilos of wire for handicrafts. We have additionally provided the boys’ “Happy Home” with lamp throttles.
Kind people from the town of Melitopol donated ten bags with clothes, shoes, books and toys and many handicraft materials. Many thanks!
On November 16th some children and adults from Kalinovka attented “Harmony of Beauty” contest. Although the young attendees could hardly understand what sort of event they saw, they were thrilled with the “concert” and asked us to take them there again. Larisa, confined to a wheelchair, who saw Zaporizhzhia only from the bus stop to the Hlynka concert hall, made a conclusion that our city was very beautiful. Three hours filled with music and dances brought much fun and joy to our Kalinovka friends, and we hope to be able to organize a little trip for them somewhere else before Christmas.
We have been continuously financing the work of a rehabilitator in the Velikiy Lug orphanage (who works there for four hours a day) as well as a rehabilitator, a physician and six educators in the Kalinovka orphanage.
The Report of Educator’s Work in Kalinovka:
Liliya K. assisted children with making bells, snowflakes and beads Christmas-trees whereas Larisa D. was also making similar Christmas tree ornaments with the young and older dwellers of the orphanage. This educator also helps the children make magnets from polymer clay. These handicrafts hours have recently resulted in pigs, frogs and a donkey made from plastic bottles.
Sophia Sh. together with Artem N. and Sasha Z. made a cornel branch from coffee filters. The children have made daisy flowers from simple white pieces of paper.
Natasha M. together with Larisa K. made a picture from grains and flowers from corrugated paper, practiced writing and assembled the construction set. Zhenya Zh. enjoyed playing ball and drawing.
Olya M. together with the girls made Christmas garlands. Larisa K. and Katya A. have learned to water pot flowers. Olya M. is also teaching Olya P. and Anzhela G. to walk.
