In December: “Vileyka orphanage”

Posted: December 31, 2018 by Dobr9k in Vileyka

Traditionally December has been the season of anticipation of holiday festivities and gifts. And it is a special time for orphans as well. It is the time when the second school term closes and long winter holidays begin ushering Christmas and New Year.
During the whole month the children are overwhelmed with expectations of the forthcoming trips abroad. Already in the mid-December a lot of them leave for Italy and UK where they spend the holidays with their foster families.
And we also wanted to be engaged in making holidays for the orphans and created a real miracle for all primary school children – a trip to Minsk and a visit to the Circus. Dima Nachina arranged with the visiting circus troop from Yakutia that the children would be allowed to see the final rehearsal of their performance. We organized the transfer paying for the gas and on December 14, 2018, over 80 children, accompanied by their tutors, stepped into a breathtaking show-program in two acts.
Clowns, actors, characters from fairy-tales and gymnasts performed for the children for two hours. The show featured joyful music, interactivities and changing decorations. The children were especially excited about the animal tamers and acrobats who did incredible stunts.
Abeautifully decorated Christmas tree was the key of the festivities symbolizing coziness and warmth of the home – just the things that are missing in the children’s lives. And as in every children’s story – at the end the good overpowered the evil.
For many children it was the first trip ever to the city. And a lot of them could only dream about visiting the circus. That’s why they were simply taken away with the emotions and their eager applause attested to their excitement.
When the performance was over, the circus manager met with the children saying a lot of warm words to them and wishing them happy holidays. The children thanked him in one voice.
The trip to the circus left a positive impact on the tutors, who shyly thanked us for the event’s organization. They acknowledge the importance of making investments and contributions into the lives of the bereaved.
And the trip to church is coming up next!

    Здорово! Организовали поездку детей в цирк! И многие из них только в первый раз увидили Минск! Это всё очень полезно для детей – позновать мир вокруг и увидить такое удивительное представление как цирк! И особенно это сверх полезно для сирот которые так редко покидают интернаты. Вы – молодцы! Спасибо вам за любовь к сиротам!
