Dmitrievskaya 25. Children’s room. We are preparing for the New Year holidays! Thanks to airbrushing and body art studio «Blue Red» and Tanya Seluyanova for costumes for our kids. Aren’t they wonderful?!!
Moms will conjure a little and children will be simply not resistible. You should have seen how much glitz and excitement in the eyes when they tried-on. Those who are older, went down to the mirror. The younger melted from their reflection in their mother's eyes. Choosing dress to Evangeline was the longest: a lot fits by size, but it was difficult to convince to try. The girl with the character: «No !!!» — and do not come here ... We found this blue, convinced, dressed up ... took off with the protest. Then she tried another 5. Just a doll. Dad and mom disagreed. They took home 3 to wash and hem. And to choose that one which will pleased everyone.
Stas is a musketeer. Andrew and Mohammad are super heroes. Sonia and Vicka are just fairies ...
You can choose dresses and suits together the children near our Children’s. All the suit require mothers with hands and imagination: hem somewhere, wash something, add appliques and sequins, pat, starch and make the New Year for the kid a little magical.
It was a holiday today! In cooperation with the Kiev office of UNHCR (which kindly gave us the perfect Christmas tree), we conducted a master class on making decorations for our beauty! And our foreign guests tell us how people celebrate Christmas and New Year in their home countries, they sang songs with a guitar, and presented to kids little sweet presents!
And we have such a beautiful Christmas tree now!) Thank you all for the warm holiday!
There was nothing at first. )
Then a cute girl Tamara called from Kiev office UNHCR to Hotline SK with a proposal to hold a master class on making Christmas decorations. The main thing that I liked was that they have promised to buy for us a Christmas tree, and materials and presents for children :). And we didn’t have a tree exactly. And there were no toys. In general, we had nothing, but a bunch of kids and a great desire to make a holiday.
After a couple weeks of joint efforts in the organization today we received such a wonderful holiday.
Nadia Ryndina picked up the children of the right age from her wards. Lena Winnick bought probably the most beautiful Christmas tree in Kharkov. Alla Feshenko purchased materials. . Ekaterina Strelchenko brought a guitar — Wojtek sang ещ children Czech Christmas songs with a guitar. Svetlana Tisheninova held a master class as she did it always). Guests from UNHCR (there were representatives of Korea and Czech Republic, talked about the traditions of New Year celebrating in their home countries) brought even gifts. Thanks to all! I think it turned out great!

And our girls from warehouse rejoiced too ... They were glad that they were able for a moment made so many people happy ... And thanks for pillows and most importantly — for the idea to bring to work the displaced people A young boy Yukhim lives at our the hostel... He was deported from Russia ... While all his documents are drawn up again, he is not sitting idly by.He stuffs pillows in exchange for honestly earned money ... By the way, the message of our pillows had spread across Kharkov and region :)The idea is that after Yukhim stuffed pillows, my Anna had to take them to the workshop, where girls are sewing up a small space through which the pillows are filled ... But for now, no pieces got to the workshop yet :) people carries with gratitude, happily reporting that they will sew up themselves:) Part of pillows went to Chuguev, part was «blurred» by Kharkov:) Yukhim continues to work:) All in business ... Kharkovites, you are the best !!!
Chuguevskaya Human Rights Group, together with volunteers of «Station Chuguev» understands that our main goal — is to help the internally displaced persons as by the legal, psychological counseling, and by the provision of humanitarian aid because of many people, leaving their home took a little due to first of all it was important to save their lives and the lives of their loved ones. In this regard, several representatives from both organizations visited v. Pechenegi on the 4-th of December this year in order to please them of some necessary household items. However, the greatest emphasis was placed to help IDPs by the legal advice. At this time, there were more than enough consultations, but what is the most surprising, whether displaced persons imbued with the soul to the locals, or vice versa, and this became a key factor, but the most frequently asked question was to obtain land in Pechenegi or anywhere in the district, they arranged to get some room, where they could grow roots and live with peace of mind. Some people spoke about the return home with great regret, many people simply do not understand how they can come back, if everything is looted, broken, destroyed and where to get means to restore that all.
People were interested and in the issues of employment, by the way, it is also due to the fact that people want to stay and do not move anywhere already. It should be noted the work the head of the Pechenejskiy employment center have done, who tried to help to the maximum number of people to get the coveted job. Also people frequently asked questions on outstanding loans. There is no secret that most of people who took out loans, before the war, now have enormous difficulties with banks. Our lawyers advised at first contact the hotline of the bank to all IDPs with similar problems, and then go to the bank and ask for a statement with requesting of the recalculation. However, everyone understands that the banks are not willing to do it, though, there are positive results.
At the end of the abovementioned meeting, our representatives of Chuguev human rights group and representatives of «Station Chuguev» pleased the people with the humanitarian aid and the various "buns" for children.
I am writing rarely in recent days I’ve probably forgotten how to already.
I have no time to do to laptop. I steep as a squirrel in a cage every day, and it seems to me everything is in one place ...
In general, we need help again.
We settled a family a day before yesterday.
Very difficult family... 5 children. The youngest is 8 months old, the eldest — 10 years.
We need to resolve a lot of questions. With documents and benefits for children, and with a birth
certificate for the youngest daughter ... In general, it’s really hard...
Dear friends, if someone wants to bring food for children, I will be grateful. While we are working to put in order the documents and transfer it for registration the allowances, children need a little support ...

The 5th of December. Children’s room. 6 boys and 7 girls. Masha – you must wear a hat – it’s sunny!
Aksinia: No, it’s a winter outdoor, I was lying in the snow, and my mother took a picture ... Masha and Aksinia are here from the midday, and their mothers are at the master class. There were two babies with their daddies in the morning. It's so touching when Dad is busy with children and the parent and the child are having fun.
There was an unusual training on project management at «Station Kharkov» today. Our Alice debuted. If I did not know that this is the first time, I thought that she is experienced coach. Our own volunteers
were participants, they listened attentively, asked questions, expressed ideas and «demanded the continuation of the banquet.» Here. It is important when people are motivated to learn. That's the main thing. «To be continued».
We are just showing off. The event was closed, we do not invite anyone. It’s little space for us :)
