On February 14th, 2013 together with the members of Imatra club, Finland, and their husbands we visited the Charity Home presenting the children different developing board games, clothes and toys.
On Christmas Day, January 7th, our club bought special soft models for the children of the Charity Home.
These toys develop space awareness, size recognition and other necessary lifelong skills in smaller children of the age of 3 up to 7 years old. Children were extremely happy, especially the smaller ones.
The Charity Home had celebrations of the 20th anniversary of its foundation. We have been together for 20 years already - it is our oldest on-going project.
There were a lot of guests - representatives of the city authorities, companies, centres and others. Our club presented a table soccer - a dream of the children. It turned out to be the biggest present of the event!
The female chamber choir Orpharion took part in the international competition "Canta al Mar" in Barcelona, Spain and received a Silver Diploma. The Club helped with the organization of the choir participation. Congratulations!
We are happy: the main project of 2012 is completed!
We planted 15 bushes, 2 silver fir trees and perennial flowers in 3 flower beds in the inner yard of Hospice-3 and Hospice-6.
The benches in the yard now have beautiful sunshade roofs. This creates a quiet and safe place for the patients who like spending their time under these roofs, even celebrate their birthdays!
On May 2, 2012 six members of the Club visited the Charity Home Drama studio performance. It took place in the real Drama Theatre on Basil island. We brought presents for the young actors: volleyball, basketball and football balls, badminton rackets and sport equipment for various summer games. The children will use it in the summer camp.
