The Report on the Works Done in Kalinovka Children’s Home in April 2013

May 21, 2013, 15:30 2182 Author: Maria Semashkina, translated by Anna Oliynyk www.deti.zp.ua In April we had a Cleaning Day in Kalinovka and reconstruction of the second Happy Home was continued – the pavement and the steps are ready now

April brought more activities to reconstruct the second Happy Home. The pavement and the steps were done this time. Now we are looking for a contractor who will do the roof works which are to start very soon.

Residents of the Kalinovka Children’s Home together with boys and girls from other psychoneurological facilities demonstrated their talents at the concert called "Pure in Heart" which was held on April 29. Among other activities, children presented their bead works at the exhibition.

Last month the website selling bead works made by Kalinovka residents started it operation. Making a donation to buy beads and other materials needed for the little craftsmen to create their masterpieces, you can purchase an art object for your home made with their own hands.

The profiles of five more orphans from Kalinovka were published at our website in April.

And, finally, the key event of April was the Cleaning Day with 15 volunteers as well as workers and residents of the Children’s Home taking part in it. And we would like to thank them all for their contribution!

Instructors’ achievements:

Oleg S. from the group of Valentina K. learned to differentiate colors. Sofia Sh. from the same group makes animal sculptures of play dough.

Raisa H. teaches children to observe the environmental processes. As a result, now the favorite activity of Oleg B. is playing with insects. Besides, Raisa made applied ornaments together with Dima S. and Oleg P.
