Easter Happiness for orphans 2012

During one week in April (April 10 - April 17) 2012 the Orphans' Future Foundation was organizing and carrying out a charity action "Easter Happiness for orphans 2012".

The purpose of this action was to draw public attention to the problems of children living in the state-run orphanages of the Ternopil region. The main goals were to give joy and happiness to the children and to spread knowledge about Eastern and national traditions to the participants of the Program. The aim was also to provide material aid and financial support to children-in-need among the orphans and children deprived of parental care, as well as to the former graduates of the orphanages living in social dormitories at the town of Ternopil.

During the week before Easter, four volunteers from the Ternopil organization "Young Education" had held two master classes on "Pysankarstvo" (painting Easter eggs) for 65 children from the Berezhany and NoveSelo state-run orphanages. They had also made a good presentation about the Ukrainian Easter traditions and had presented the audience with sweet gifts. Materials for master classes as well as coverage of the travel costs of the volunteers had been generously provided by the Orphans' Future constant supporter benefactor and supporter from Australia Mr. Ron MacKellar. That had been very exciting activities and pleasant events for the children and we got positive reviews and suggestions from their teachers to organize more of such interesting events to enrich lives of the kids deprived of such opportunities in there difficult everyday's reality

In addition, the former graduates of orphanages who are now active volunteers of the "Orphans' Future" Foundation had organized the campaign to gather necessary food and hygiene items which had been distributed on April 15, 2012 to 25 persons in need of help from among orphans and orphanage alumni living in the social dormitories at the town of Ternopil. Distribution of food packages is an important element of the action, as most of the children have no families to celebrate Easter together with. Some other activities bringing together recent and former graduates have been organized, for example a round festive table of 5 former graduates of orphanages, including the Foundation's chairman Andriy Nazarenko. Many thanks go to the company "ANT" for its generous financial assistance for acquisition of target products for these events.

"Brotherhood of orphans" organized its sixth community charity action "Bring happiness to an orphan on Easter in a family". About 20 children of different ages had an opportunity to spend Easter holidays at Ternopil local host families. Thanks to our community for their kindness and help and deep understanding of the situation of the children in orphanages! An opportunity to be with a family is extremely important for social development of the children as it practically shows to children the importance of family ties and values. Experience from family holiday will definitevely help the children in their future adult life.
