On February 6 volunteers of "Helping Hands" went to visit the kids in the rehabilitation center "Parus Nadezhdi". The kids learnt how to make beautiful cards for their moms.

Program «English corner». Free English lessons for kids in Vladivostok

In February "Helping Hands" volunteers continued to give free English lessons for kids in Vladivostok. The topics of the classes were different, but the atmosphere was always the same – comfortable and with lots of fun!

Program «Elder sister, elder brother». Master class in the rehabilitation center “Parus nadezhdi”

On February 25 "Helping Hands" volunteers went to the rehabilitation center "Parus Nadezhdi" and held a master class for the kids. They taught the children how to make snowdrops and tulips from paper, played games and told the kids fairy tales about these beautiful spring flowers. Both the volunteers and the children had much fun together.

"English Club" program

English is the language which gives you an opportunity to explore the whole world and that was the main message of the lesson which was held in the rehabilitation center on February 26. "Helping Hands" volunteers and a world traveler Danniel Oriveira visited the kids in "Parus Nadezhdi" and organized an English speaking class for the children.

We believe that such meetings can help the children get hope for better and bright future. They learnt how important it is to be able to speak a foreign language. They practiced conversation and played word games. For children in a difficult life situation, such communication and a fresh look on life can serve a good motivation in the future.

Program «The rainbow of childhood» New!!!

On February 28 volunteers from the organization "Baby Club" in Vladivostok together with "Helping Hands" charity and library №7 held a fascinating detective reading for children with disabilities. "The case about the missing diamonds "was really interesting and children got fully involved in the investigation! They listened to a story about the diamonds which got missing from a jewelry store. And then took part in a quest trying to find the clues and solve the mystery. Children with disabilities make a rather fragile group of children in our society who need our special attention and care! We heartily thank enthusiasts of Baby Club who volunteer in this wonderful project for invalid kids!

Program «Smile»

On February 25 "Helping Hands" gave Yuri Kiryushkin a certificate for free dental treatment at the dental clinic "Implants". Yuri is currently staying in the rehabilitation center, he is in difficult life circumstances.

Program “Aunt and uncle”

On February 28 "Helping Hands" volunteers went to visit children in an orphanage in the village of Pokrovka. We brought presents for boys and girls and played games. We also prepared a special event for the kids – a master class on making a fruit cake! All children took part in the master class and learnt how to slice fruits, to put cream between the layers of the cake and how to put a cake together as a whole piece. The meeting ended with a traditional tea party. We invite volunteers to join us in the trips to the orphanages and donate some time to the kids who live without parents.

Program «Happy Birthday with love»

We continue our special project for disabled kids and every month we congratulate them with their birthdays. In January 2 kids received birthday presents. In February we managed to congratulate 3 invalid children – they were happy to meet the guests on a special day. We thank our constant partner - sushi-bar “Tokyo” for their sincere interest and participation in this program!
