Help needed: installing playground to the "Sun" orphanage for the youngest children

April 12, 2007, 3:10 10695 Author: Albert Pavlov, Zaporozhye (translated from Russian by Masha, Kiev) www.deti.zp.ua Parents who love their children will lead them to the best playground in the city. But what can do the little orphans from the children house “Sun”?

Zaporozhe’s regional children’s house “Little sun” (Solnishko) is more than fifty years old. It is only one establishment, where more than 300 orphan, handicapped children, children who lost their parents live and they also are educated and treated there. Children are from a few months to four years old.

It would seem that it is worthy of it to show our gratitude to this unique establishment. There are many huge industrial plants, large-scaled firms, not very poor people in our city, after all! Unfortunately, this children house doesn’t have enough sponsors as it needs.

The “Little sun” ‘s yard will depress you if you look at it. You can see old ragged ladders and sand-boxes, pavilions without benches, sand-boxes without sand. Young children who are educated there will remember all this in such way. Most kindergartens look more perfectly. Parents who love their children will lead them to the best playground in the city. But what can do the little orphans from the children house “Little sun”?

So, the volunteers of site www.deti.zp.ua decided to solve this problem. Of course, idea of provision of the necessary facilities of playgrounds was supported by head physician of children house “Little sun” Galina Galkina and all its personnel.

And we make a request to the visitors of our site to do what one can do to help us to equip playgrounds for orphans with modern services and utilities. You can help us in such ways:

- You can gather money in your organization, among your acquaintance or buy up different parts of playground against to your financial opportunities. For example, standard ready-made chute which was made by one of Ukrainian producers costs 1900 hryvnias, swings costs 1300 hryvnias, playing complex which consists of two turrets and chutes costs 15800 hryvnias, full playing complex which consists of few turrets and chutes costs from 27000 to 10000 hryvnias and more.

- You can help to make chutes, ladders, machines, steam locomotives, swings. This version needs more time to execute, but probably it will allow saving money and offering the best configuration of playground.

- Plants, banks, large-scaled organizations, businessmen can buy up full playing complex. Doing this, they put up money in health and happiness of our little citizens.

You can reduce with any propositions to Albert Pavlov (+3 8 066 513 34 35, e-mail detizp@mail.ru ) to the head physician of children house “Little sun” Galina Galkina).
