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".
