Program “Elder brother, elder sister”. Volunteers visit kids in orphanage №4

Non-commercial partnership “Helping hands” organizes and supports a lot of programs of the volunteer initiatives. On March 13 volunteers from the student teams came to the orphanage and organized a funny holiday which was devoted to the arrival of the spring. Children passed funny tests and welcomed spring with dances and songs.

Volunteers cooked many pancakes for the children and the kids ate them with sour cream and jam. Children said that these simple homemade pancakes were the most delicious treat for them. But the most important thing was that volunteers showed the children that they love them and are always ready to come to them and share moments of happiness and joy together.

Program Family club “Harmony”

On March 12 a regular meeting of the family club "Harmony” was organized for the little ones in the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi”. The master class “yummy pancakes” was held for the kids who enjoyed the excursion to the supermarket where a professional cook showed them how pancakes are made. Children learnt about traditions of Maslenitsa feast and they were shown how to make dough for pancakes. At the end of the day children took part in a funny game program which was called “Welcome, spring”. They played games and tasted the pancakes which they made themselves.

Program “Elder sister, elder brother“. Master class on making spring flowers

Every child wants attention and love, his soul is open to meet new people and socialize with them. “Helping hands” volunteers came to children in the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi” on March 18. The kids were happy to see again their older friends. Together they made spring flowers and decorated the cards. Children’s imagination had no limits when they were choosing colors and shapes for their flowers! They chatted about their studies, difficulties and joyful moments. Then the volunteers organized a photo session for children and every kid could feel himself as a model. The master class was fun and the kids were happy.

Program Family club “Harmony”

On March 26 “Helping hands” together with the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi “ organized a regular meeting of the family club “Harmony”. The purpose of each meeting is to revive and strengthen the family ties. This time children together with their parents played different kinds of games.

Parents received advice from the psychologist on the individual characteristics for their kids. The meeting finished with a master class aimed to develop creativity in the kids. Children used modeling clay to make a “naughty cat” from the fairy tale and parents helped to set up an exhibition of their works.

Program “Elder sister, elder brother“

On March 26 “Helping hands” volunteers went to visit the children in the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi “. Our charity organization passed beautiful clothes for kids. It was a gift from the employees of the shop ”Tillson “ in Vladivostok. Also every kid received a set for creative art and painting from the partnership “Helping hands“.

Our volunteers played with the children. They also made beautiful cards and decorations with the kids. One volunteer, Daria, is a psychologist and she held a session of art therapy for the kids. Children had a lot of fun drawing pictures and socializing with the volunteers. Such positive model of socializing with the adults is very important for the kids in the rehabilitation center. They are in a difficult life situation because their parents are facing different sorts of problems and are often deprived of parental rights for abuse and violent behavior.

Program «Let’s have fun!». Excursion to Arseniev museum

On March 28 our partnership “Helping Hands” organized an excursion to Arseniev museum for kids from the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi”. Children were fascinated to visit the museum’s exhibitions and looked at the exhibits with much interest. They listened to the guide attentively and asked questions about the history of the museum and the heritage of the Primorsky region.

Program «English corner»

In March we continued to organize English lessons for the kids in Vladivostok. “Helping hands” and students from the pedagogical team “STEP” organize the lessons together with city libraries. On March 12 the lessons were held in three city libraries. The topics of the lessons were about spring, fairy tales and good manners.

The children solved the riddles, listened to English stories, sang funny songs and drew flowers. In the library where the lesson was dedicated to fairy tales the children took part in the adventure quest. They drew princes, princesses and castles but at the same time they didn’t forget to learn new words.In the other library the children learned to be polite. The students talked with children about the importance of polite manners, good deeds and good behavior. Volunteers use many games during their lessons to make a learning process easy and interesting for the kids. Colorful presentations also help children understand the information better.

Program «Happy birthday with love!»

Our partnership and sushi-bar «Tokyo» continue a charity program for the disabled children. In March three kids of Vladivostok suffering from serious illnesses received presents on their birthdays. The program is aimed to bring more joy and happiness into the lives of invalid kids. They are always happy to meet the guests and receive presents and attention.
