On Saturday, October 17, 2015, 11 young pupils of The Zaporozhye School of Arts №3, Hortitsky district, gave a wonderful concert for pupils of The Kalinovki & Orlovsky Neuropsychiatric Boarding Schools.

The children were not afraid of the long road and uncomfortable conditions for performance. At both boarding locations, they had to act in the dining room because there were no assembly halls. The children sang, danced, played guitar and saxophone.

The grim faces of people were transformed by listening to amazingly beautiful songs and enjoying the manifestation of children's talents. Many adult men could not hold back their tears. People whom society often reject felt extraordinarily happy moments. I do not know about others, but I personally in such moments feel a very clear union between all human beings. Despite their illnesses, people in the psycho-neurological boarding schools experience the same feelings as we do and just want to be happy.

Some residents of Orlovsky picked flowers and gave them to the children. The children were happy because they gave happy moments to an unspoiled audience. The goal of all art is to give people happiness and awaken their best feelings.

We would like to sincerely thank the young participants of the concert, as well as director of the children's art school №3 Andrey Sulaev, deputy director Oksana Koplenko and all the teachers of the school.

In order to continue these trips to different boarding schools, we need help to pay for transportation. A 15 seats minibus costs from $50 to $120 per trip.

If you could help of supply us with a minibus or other mode of transportation for the young artists, please email info@deti.zp.ua or call +3 8 066 513 34 35
