Projects spreads to another orphanage!

Dear all,

Thank you for your support!

As we informed you before our project made a huge impact for orphaned children from Vsevolojsk baby care center.

Since we highlighted the issue of needed massage for almost all children and arranged a few courses of massage for each child the administration of the baby care center took a decision to create their own posts of masseuses and permanently provide the children with their services.

We still decided to leave one masseuse in the baby care center to be sure that all children get the needed help.

Today's news is that we have received another request of similar type.

This time it came from the orphanage #7 of Saint Petersburg. This is correctional orphanage where 30 children of different age urgently need massage.

Please visit the home page of the orphanage.

We are inviting you make a donation so we will be able to start helping these children!

Project news May 2012

Hello everyone!

We are very happy to tell you about our results!

The biggest achivement that the project did is the fact that Vsevolojsk baby care center started to pay more attention to the problems of orphan children. The Center officially hired 3 professional masseuse so we had to reduce the number of masseuses working for our project.

By now only one masseuse hired by Petersburg Parents works with children in Vsevolojsk baby care center.

As long as children need our help we are going on with the project.

We are very thankful to all our supporters!

January 2012 - Massage for orphan babies in Vsevolojsk baby-care center

Dear friends!

thank you for your support of our project!

The project continues with the three highly experienced massage therapists that we have been working with for a long time. Massage therapy helps the orphaned kids with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and similar disorders, develop better physically and get stronger. Better physical condition is vital for their intellectual development.

Your support of this project makes all this possible. We can not thank you enough! 

Please keep supporting our current projects on GlobalGiving!
