A small “city” in the Dnepropetrovsk region, in which live people with a difficult fate. They so miss our attention, care and emotional warmth. This is Dnepropetrovsk geriatric boarding house. It is the largest in the Dnepropetrovsk region. Today almost 600 people have found shelter here: they are elderly people and people who are in follow-up by the psychiatrist, and young people who are disabled people of groups 1 and 2 from 18 years and older.
In order to pay public attention to the problems of elderly people, disabled people and persons with disabilities within the framework of the social program of 2017, on the initiative of Oleg Velichko, CEO of «Techno-Image» Ltd, with the support of not indifferent organizations, namely the public organization «Leaders movement «Discover yourself», the all-Ukrainian charitable foundation «Renaissance Ukraine» and in the framework of the charitable action «Towards people» on March 15, 2017 boarders of Dnepropetrovsk geriatric boarding house was presented with a real holiday!
A concert program with dances, songs and poems in which children from the Studio of Theater and Cinema «FeelIn» together with the students of Dnepropetrovsk Transport and Economic College and Dnepropetrovsk State Agrarian and Economic University touched the strings of kindness and humanity, created the holiday atmosphere. And what was a beautiful button accordion playing by student of Dnepropetrovsk State Agrarian and Economic University!
The company «VAL» Ltd. presented fruits, candies, waffles and cookies to the boarders. A good gift was also clothing and 100 books, handed over by the coordinator of the public organization “Volunteers of Ukraine” Shmeleva S.A.
But the greatest surprise and joy of the boarders of the boarding house were by the visit of the hairdressers from the Educational center «Serge and Natali». 35 boarders were made beautiful hair and haircuts.
Everyone was happy with the guests, and each of the boarders, though not for long, forgot about their inner pain and physical defects, about loneliness and spiritual emptiness. On this day faces and eyes of boarders of Dnepropetrovsk boarding house shone with joy and happiness from the fact that so many guests came to them, that they are remembered and taken care of!!!
It is good that in our country there are not indifferent organizations and companies, students, educational centers and volunteers who were able to gather and organize such a wonderful holiday to people in geriatric institutions.
