“Christmas Holiday to Every Home” for elderly people2015-12-21 15:12
On 18 December our team visited the Kyiv Geriatric Nursing Home for Disabled Persons, Elderly People, Veterans of War and Labour with a charity concert “Christmas Holiday to Every Home” and many entertaining activities.
During Christmas and New Year holidays we always remember our relatives, friends and people dear to us. But no one usually remembers about lonely people. That’s why the organizers of the event – the Association of International and All-Ukrainian NGOs “Social Protection” with its President Eugenia Tymoshenko and LoraShen Company, singers Marta Adamchuk and Nadiya Startseva, and vocal studio “Elegia” visited the geriatric nursing home and presented to its residents both New Year’s gifts and the festive concert.
“Bringing joy to elderly people is pleasant the same as to children. An elderly person experiences delicate emotions and sincerity as a child. Today we did this; we managed to present a festival and care to them, to bring them back – even if only for a day – to real childhood where everyone of them was a rabbit or a snowflake at the festival. They called together Did Moroz who reminded them of child’s trembling at the moment of waiting for a miracle. The elderly people, as children, cited poems for Did Moroz and he treated them with different tasty food.” – Iryna Volgina, President of INGO “Towards Your Dream” said.
We sincerely thank all participants for the truly wonderful day that left many unforgettable memories, in particular to INTV for the great initiative with Did Moroz and Coca Cola TM for water and juices; and all caring people who participated in our event.
