The presentation of the Center of support and adaptation of IDP's children with special needs was today.

We prepared this project for a long time, and then a mountain of force majeure dropped on us , due to which the start was delayed and delayed, but we fought and broke through: the project recieved a new manager, the heating in the premises is switched on, it is comfortable and a lot of children's smiles have been kindled. This is just the beginning — today we became acquainted, made out the applications, recognized the need, caressed the charming red-haired rabbit, eated snacks, watched the presentation, played with balloons, secretly wiped tears while listening to incredible, but unfortunately took place, history, smiled, delighted, surprised. ...

Today we met wonderful kids: smart, kind, polite, talented ... Among our younger guests there were also athletes and geeks and polyglots, dancers, needlewoman, artists and those who have not found their creative spark yet, and we will try to help them with this ... We met wonderful parents: wise, steadfast, strong, loving …

This is just the beginning — we have six months of the project ahead we will try to help young participants to develop their potential, find friends, become healthier and happier, and their families to rebuild their lives in a new place for this period.
