December 16, 2014, 21:30 3109 Author: Maria Semashkina, translated by Daria Sukach deti.zp.ua 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.

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.
