The March Report on the Work Done in Orphanages for Children and Adults with Special Needs
A workshop on soap-making for tutors and a trip to Zaporozhzhye arranged for the people under care of Kalinovka orphanage are the main events of the past month
In March thirty cans of Resource Optimum protein nutrition for children with anemia and adults with dystrophy were bought for Kalinovka orphanage. Also an electrical stimulator was purchased at the request of the doctor in Kalinovka. And, of course, we keep paying to the doctor and a masseur in Kalynivka and buy gasoline to provide transportation of the fosterlings to the hospital. Last month we spent 1,000 hryvnias (41 US dollars) on gasoline. Also in March 600 hryvnias (25 US dollars) was expended for boiler repair in one of the "Happy Homes".
Although with a little delay but finally Christmas cards and sweets from people of Great Britain came to Kalinovka in March.
Twice we supplied bedridden children of Kirovo orphanage with 45 packages of special meals, 55 syringes and 76 catheters.
On March 10th the dwellers of Kalinovka had a trip to Zaporozhzhye, where they visited the Boguslayev museum of equipment and attended the concert in memory of Taras Shevchenko in the concert hall named after Glinka.
In March three tutors of Kalinovka adult patients were present at the workshop on soap manufacture.
Also in March, we continued working on reformatting Kalynivka "Happy Home" into family type orphanages and today we are looking for a family who is willing to settle down in one of the "Happy Homes" to become foster parents to nine children with special needs.
