How is it, looking back, to understand that your life is over? .. And you were left alone, nobody needs you. Probably scary ...
Pandemic and quarantine have made their adjustments in everyone's life! Children who were behind closed doors of orphanages and specialized institutions were significantly affected. They were always prisoners of circumstances, and now they have lost those rare meetings with volunteers who came with interesting entertainment, deep conversations, hugs, games; volunteers who became friends with those children gave support, advice!
As is often the case when we see a person with a disability, we turn our eyes away as if we do not notice him. These are the consequences of Soviet rule, when an "uncomfortable" person is "hidden" from the eyes of an ideal society. The state is calmer when people (as they are often incorrectly called) "with special needs" are locked in reservations, where they are not allowed to die of starvation, but do not leave any chance for a full life.
These wrinkled at times, often helpless - like children, waiting for some miracle, impressions! But every day they see the gray walls of the hospital, songs of food! You and I can add color to their lives! It takes quite a bit! 💙 Read the details in the project description ...

They exist, they live, they exist, and not only on Nicholas! And we work for help and a better life for them. So help us realize this DREAM OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN !!! (read below)

When there is someone around you, but at the same time so lonely! And you are waiting… sometimes you do not know who you are waiting for! It happens that children have the person they are looking forward to, with whom they can talk about everything in the world, who will hug them, say a warm word, support them!
