On September 8, our volunteers visited the District Orphanage "Native House", located in the village. Kornalovichi.

The morning seemed cloudy and rainy ?️ and everything looked as if the picnic would be difficult. But we believed that a good deed would definitely work out in the best way. And already in the village. Kornalovichi we were greeted by the sun ?.

It is impossible to convey with what warmth діти the children greeted us. I visited the orphanage for the first time and did not know for sure how I would react and how everything would go. But the children were so outspoken that all my fears were immediately dispelled. For the first time I saw that vegetables, meat and even onions were cut with such zeal !!! It was just incredible. The children went ahead with all the tasks ??.

One of the students of the institution even dreams of becoming a chef. Natalia Stepanenko immediately noticed his ability to do so. In the process, the children told their stories and the elders shared who they wanted to be. Anja Konstantynova Behey made friends with a pupil of the institution, who really wants to become a hairdresser and soon the time will come when you have to choose the direction of movement. There were guys who want to do sports and girls who dance very well ?.

In general, there were a lot of smiles and hugs, kisses and nonsense ?.

We returned exhausted, happy and sad. Because there was a lot of pain and sorrow behind these happy faces. It is difficult to remain indifferent after hearing their stories. And to the question "how long have you lived here" - hear the answer: "always lived here."
