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 August of 2014.

Программа «Добрый автобус»

On August 9 partnership «Helping Hands» together with Primorsky organisation for disabled children «Detstvo» and our sponsor auto center “Goodman” organized a joint summer program “Bus of kindness” for disabled kids. Ten families raising disabled children took part in the trip. We also invited 11 children from the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi” to join us. We prepared an entertainment show which was called “Neptune’s party” and we went to the seaside to have all activities there.

The teachers from the rehabilitation center prepared the scenario and the show took place on the sand. The children met Neptune, mermaids and sea devils, danced and sang songs about the sea. They solved puzzles and had much fun painting funny sea plants on small stones. The children chatted, rested, sunbathed and had much fun in the open air! In the afternoon the bus took the happy kids and parents home.

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

On August 18 Partnership «Helping hands» together with the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi» organized an excursion for kids to Arseniev museum. The kids visited the museum’s exhibition halls and special expositions. The guide helped them learn many interesting facts about the history of the museum and Primorsky krai. The children had a chance to see interesting letters and photos from archives of famous people of Primorye.

They enjoyed taking photos in the exhibition hall of Ussuriisk taiga animals. During such excursions children get to comprehend the history of Russia, the culture, habits and traditions of Russian people. And they have much fun while being toured around the museum! If your enterprise is interested in the project and is ready to invite kids for an excursion, please contact our organization and we will organize an interesting event together!

Program «Let’s have fun!» Visit to «Treasure Island»

On August 19 we organized a visit for the kids from orphanage №2 and kids from the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi” to the children’s entertainment center "Treasure Island". The kids had fun playing and jumping, and volunteers from the city’s resource center organized funny contests for them with small presents and sweets. We organized an “Apple Day” for 30 children. The volunteers played with the kids and gave an apple to each child. The children were really happy, smiled and jumped and enjoyed the visit greatly. We would like to thank our partner – administration of "Treasure Island" entertainment center who make the project possible and give so many bright and happy moments to the kids in need.

Program «Smile»

In August we continued to work with the program «Smile», a charity program designed to provide free dental care to kids from families in need. We gave the certificate for free dental treatment to mother of Antonina Rodina. There are 12 children in the family, 10 of them were adopted. It always takes much time and money to keep the children’s teeth in proper condition so the girl’s mother gladly accepted our help. Help to this family was provided by our constant partner in this program – a dental clinic “Implants”. This year Antonina starts school and we are pleased that she will come to her first class with an open and happy smile!

Program «Family club «Harmony»

Every month the family club «Harmony» - a joint project of “Helping Hands” and “Parus Nadezhdi”, a rehabilitation center for the kids in difficult life situation, organizes interesting meetings for these kids. In August volunteers came to the kids and played games in the open air. They organized a show of soap bubbles and then they taught small children how to make balloon toys. And the volunteers also brought presents for each kid.

The children were really happy to receive so much love and attention. It is not very difficult to make a surprise visit and organize a nice event for these kids. If you are ready to volunteer some of your time contact our partnership and we will help you take part in any of our charity projects for orphans and children in need.

Another meeting of the Family Club harmony in August was dedicated to an unusual master class «Warmth of my candle” - the children learnt how to make handmade decorative candles. The kids had much fun while decorating the candles – they put small sea shells, stones, colored beans and artificial leaves into the glasses and then the volunteers helped to fill the glasses with paraffin wax. After the candles were ready, the kids and the volunteers lit each candle and made wishes! The kids were happy.

Program «Let’s have fun!» Visit to Anastasia Volochkova’s charity concert

On August 31 we invited 70 children from extended families, from the rehabilitation center ‘Parus Nadezhdi”, from families with disabled children to attend the charity show organized by Russian ballet dancer Anastasia Volochkova. We also gave free tickets to orphans-graduates who participate in our adaptation program. Children greatly enjoyed the colorful dance show and we express our sincere gratitude to the organizers of this charity event and personally to Anastasia Volochkova who donated free tickets.

We thank all our sponsors and partners who took part in New Year projects. Please stay with us throughout the year and continue do good things for children!
