Vladimir Bidyovka delivers presents to children found in challenging life situation
On January 14, on the occasion of the Old New Year, DPR People’s Council Chairman Vladimir Bidyovka, aided by the People’s Council, delivered gifts to children found in challenging life situations, children deprived of parental care, and with limited health capabilities.
In a comment for the People’s Council’s press service, Vladimir Bidyovka noted that such a charity event is held by parliament annually.
“Today we are all celebrating the Old New Year – one of the kindly, bright January holidays. And of course, one can’t do without gifts on this day.
We visited Khartsyzsk, Makeyevka and Donetsk, paid a visit to a children’s social centre, a boarding school and an orphanage, and also arrived at the Gusak Institute for Emergency and Reconstructive Surgery to delivered sweet gifts and fruits to the children. I can safely say that every child in our Republic should feel care and support from our side. And there really is no such thing as somebody else’s children – the entire Donbass is one big friendly family where everyone should take care of each other.
Today we brought gifts not only from the deputy corps, but also from the Central Office of the People’s Council, and I am sincerely glad that today, through our joint efforts, we were able to bring joy to so many children from different towns of the Republic: in total 229 children received gifts and fruits on this holiday. I would like to say that last year we congratulated the children in this format too; therefore, one may assume that it is becoming a tradition. And this is a good initiative that needs to be continued,” the Speaker of Parliament said.
The gifts were delivered to the pupils of the Khartsyzsk Children’s Social Centre, the public school “Makeyevka Special Needs Boarding School No. 36,” the state pre-school educational institution “Donetsk Orphanage No. 1″Teremok””, as well as fruits to children treated at the Institute for Emergency and Recovery Surgery named after V.K. Gusak.
