Natasha & Nadia say what our camp means to them

Natasha and Nadia both grew up in orphanages and they both took part in our summer camp in 2011.  In this video they explain how important the summer camp was to them and their children.

Apart from the summer camp, Natasha has been coming to the parenting support group for three years.  She has a little girl aged 9 and a 4-year-old boy.  At first she didn't realise she had a problem with parenting, but with the gentle correction of the psychologists running the group she could see that she could be too harsh.  Over these three years, Natasha has gained hugely in confidence.  She has been able to meet the changing challenges of parenting growing children, and gets great pleasure out of being with her children.

Nadia has only just got involved with the support group, but she really enjoyed her first summer camp.  She has enjoyed a huge number of new experiences with her little boy, and has had a chance to learn from the other parents.

We are already thinking about next year and need your help so we can offer this life-changing experience to more families.
