Family club «Harmony»

Family club “Harmony” is a joint project of “Ruki Pomoschi” and “Parus Nadegdi”.

We had the grand opening on 16 of April, starting with a game program Journey into a fairyland “Sharlandia”, it was fun! Parents and kids played together and it helped them to get closer.

The second meeting was on 30 of April: professional psychologists worked with parents while their kids were playing with volunteers. Meetings of the club are held every second Saturday of the month at Irtishskaya street 8, at 16:00 o’clock.

It is our hope that more and more families will join this club. We’ll help parents to solve some problems with their kids; children can find new friends and learn how to communicate.

Week of kindness. Project “Grandchild for an hour”

Russian week of kindness was held from 16 till 23 of April. Volunteers all around Russia created and turned in to reality different projects. Our Partnership supported project “Grandchild for an hour”.

60 volunteers from different youth organizations of the city came to visit 30 old people to help them clean the apartment, go for a walk with their pets and talk to veterans in friendly atmosphere.

Older people received sweet presents. We want to thank our partners: supermarket chain “Royal market” and cake-shops “Vishnevy sad” for helping to organize food baskets.

Our veterans were very thankful for the visit and the help they received. All the volunteers also experienced good emotions. Some volunteers exchanged phone numbers with seniors and decided to help them regularly.

25 of April we started a new project together with rehabilitation center “Parus Nadegdi”. 5 specalists (the head of diagnosis, correction and emergency social-psychological help, psychologist, speech therapist, speech pathologist, psychologist from AID clinical center) came to Dalnerechensk city.
