Philanthropy in Far East Russia

May, 2013
Welcome to the pages of the regular news issue of the Charity Partnership «Helping Hands» DARE TO CARE! News. In this issue we present for your kind attention our regular newsletter with all information about monthly events which took place in May 2013.

Program "Elder sister, elder brother"

Partnership "Helping Hands" supports a program of a team of Vladivostok volunteers who visit kids in the city orphanages. On May 4 our volunteers visited kids in orphanage №2, the topic of the visit was «Easter». First, the volunteers told children the story of Easter, and then they made paper eggs and decorated them. Volunteers also brought a box of presents and handed them to the kids. Then it was time for fun and games!

On May 11 volunteers came with another visit to kids in orphanage №2, and this time they discussed the topic «A true hero». Volunteers talked with the kids about heroes and their characters and each child then drew a picture of some hero. However, the most exciting part was creating medals and awarding them to orphans for their best deeds. Guitar songs became a concluding chord in this warm and memorable meeting.

On May 26 another group of our volunteers visited kids in the rehabilitation center "Parus Nadezhdi". Volunteers came with a story of Cyrillic Alphabet and told the kids many interesting facts about the Slavic culture, about traditions and clothing. Then the kids had fun dressing the dolls in traditional Russian clothes. They also participated in the contest to make short funny rhymes. The kids' imagination was endless but the most precious was their sincere interest and happy smiles!


Program «Family Club «Harmony»

On May 11, 2013 a regular meeting of the family club "Harmony" was held in the rehabilitation center. This joint project of our partnership "Helping Hands" and "Parus Nadezhdi" is focused on supporting families and children in difficult life situations. Children keenly waited for their parents to arrive. The topic of the meeting was «Springtime drip-drops». Children played with parents and drew pictures.

On May 25 another regular meeting of the family club "Harmony" became a pleasant surprise for parents whose kids currently live in the rehabilitation center. The children prepared and staged a small play «A wolf and seven goatlings». Volunteers helped the kids learn the play and stage it.


Program «English Club»

On May 17 partnership "Helping Hands" together with foreign language school "English Planet" had another regular session of "English club" in "Parus Nadezhdi". Our partnership implements this program in order to give the kids in a difficult life situation some practical knowledge that will be of use in their future life. During the lessons children drew funny pictures and learnt many words by playing games. Teachers from language school "English Planet" and Francis Landivar, director of a non-commercial partnership "Helping Hands" believe that learning English language can be both useful and enjoyable!


Program "Let's have fun"

On May 22 in the frames of the project "Let's have fun!" we organized a visit for kids to children's entertainment center «Treasure Island», a constant partner of our organization in this charity program. 45 children from two city orphanages and from the rehabilitation center "Parus Nadezhdi" had much fun playing in the center.

Volunteers of «Helping Hands» played and talked with the kids. This program for orphans is really important because it brings joy and fun in the life of kids who suffer from life difficulties.


Program "Let's have fun". Excursion to «Sollers» automobile plant

On May 24 we organized an excursion for teenagers from rehabilitation center "Parus Nadezhdi" to the auto-making plant "Sollers". Teenagers are always interested to visit the plant's workshops and learn how the cars are assembled. They also ask the guide about the most needed professions in the plant. Kids who are by circumstances now in a difficult life situation may use this opportunity to find their way in life in the future and some of them may come to work at the plant and become part of the plant's enormous working team. Such excursions help them to get oriented in the world of professions and may become the first step to a successful career in the future.


Program «Happy Birthday with love»

Our partnership and sushi-bar «Tokyo» continue a charity program for the disabled children. In April we congratulated 5 kids with their birthdays. Lyah Nikol, Skrylnikov Vitaly, Bobrov Vitaly, Polischuk Matvei and Pushkareva Irina were exceptionally happy to receive surprise birthday presents from volunteering employees of Sushi-bar "Tokyo". We would like to express our gratitude to Sushi-bar "Tokyo" for their continuous participation in this charity program.


Special project «Salute from childhood»

In May volunteers from FENU together with a non-commercial partnership «Helping Hands» made a joint project aiming to bring more joy into the lives of orphans. Volunteers played with the kids from orphanage №2and took funny pictures, then they printed photos and made special albums for all small children in the orphanage.

Such albums will help orphans keep happy memories. Alena Shumei, head of the project, said that photo albums became not only a present but a true surprise for each kid. When they played with volunteers they did not know that later they would receive personal photo albums.

The kids appreciated that they were photographed in joyful moments of their childhood. Partnership «Helping Hands» financed this socially-important project. 50 kids received personal photo albums.

Partnership «Helping Hands» in May brought clothes, toys, books, sports equipment, TV sets to the orphanage in the village of Pokrovka.

The children were happy to receive new toys while teenagers admitted that footballs were the best present in summer! TV sets were given by Dmitry Shemetov, partner of our organization and general director of "TV-Tsentr–Vladivostok». Teachers in the orphanage said that children enjoy watching films about animals and cartoons.
