We are pleased to share the latest Foster Family Project news with you.
In February, 11 parents (9 families) completed a regular School for Foster Parents training course. Four children from government institutions were placed in foster families trained by the project staff. Over the last 3 months, 28 families with 38 foster children benefited from the project support.
Additionally, two meetings of the Club for Foster Families took place in February-March 2013, as outlined below:
The meeting held on February 15 was devoted to the Fatherland Defender’s Day. The parents and their children were given an opportunity to demonstrate inventiveness, smartness and soldier skills. The boys showed their preparedness to defend and take care of others. At the end of the meeting, the participants were singing one of popular military songs.
The meeting on March 15 was devoted to the International Women’s Day. The parents and their children were taking active part in joyful games and contests, inventing their own dress designs and showing them on a podium, making a greeting card, singing and dancing. The interactive part of the holiday was followed by a traditional tea-drinking party with delicious pies served. The meeting culminated in giving flowers to the girls and their mothers.
Doctors to Children looks forward to sharing more news from the Foster Family Project.

Dear friends,Thanks to your donations, over the last months we have been able to organize a wonderful Christmas party for 30 foster children. The Samoilov Actors Memorial Museum hosted a wonderful performance inspired by Pushkin’s fairy tales. The event was organized by Doctors to Children for children from the Foster Family Project. Every child had an opportunity to participate in the show as one of fairy-tale characters. Of course, there are no New Year holidays without presents – the Father Frost and the Snow Maiden tried to fulfill the children’s dearest wishes.The event culminated in the traditional tea, cakes and pies for children and their parents. Volunteer photographers were trying to catch the most joyful and brightest moments of the show and offered the kids to take part in a real photo session.This is due to your participation and care that we were able to organize this wonderful New Year holiday for Foster Family Project clients. On behalf of our clients and their foster children, We thank you all once more for your generous support. Doctors to Children looks forward to sharing more news from the Foster Family Project. Best wishes,Doctors to Children,The Foster Family Project team
