New Year Celebration Party

New Year Celebration Party for Foster Family Project Clients.


On December 20, 2015, the Radisson Royal Hotel hosted a New Year celebration party for the clients of DTC’s Foster Family Project. That day, parents and children found themselves in a real New Year fairy tale: actors of the Tarabum Theater did their best to make the evening unforgettable for all. Children with their parents were playing guessing games, participating in contests, singing and dancing. Father Frost called on, bringing wonderful presents. The good wizard tried to meet all the wishes, and each child was gifted a wanted present. The children prepared a performance for the long-awaited guest – reciting verses and singing songs, and dancing around the beautiful New Year tree. The greetings and gifts giving ceremony were followed by a tea party. The hotel restaurant prepared delicious meals and desserts for children and parents. The children especially welcomed a cake with fireworks.

We are glad to know that the Foster Family Project has friends and follow-thinkers. This is due to your participation that we are able to find parents for children from shelters and orphanages.

New Year Celebration at MAMA+

New Year Celebration at MAMA+


On December 22, the MAMA+ Project held a New Year celebration party for children. The youngest clients of the project, together with their mothers and Snow Maiden, were doing a circle dance around the New Year tree, making snowballs, whereas older kids were reciting poems. After the tree lighting ceremony, all the children received presents and good wishes from Father Frost and Snow Maiden.
A surprise was prepared for children and mothers at the end of the holiday: representatives of a commercial company awarded gifts to the MAMA+ Project – baby formula and diapers. This year, the company staff replaced New Year souvenirs by goods of the first priority for the social support project.

We are gratefull to you for supporting the project! We are wishing all the participants of the Global Giving project good health and prosperity in the coming year!

December 1 - World AIDS Day

 

December 1 – WorldAIDSDay. Action at + .

That day, following the good tradition, a group of volunteers – makeup designers from MAC Cosmetics – made a visit to Doctors to Children and their MAMA+ Project. The guests told the MAMA+ clients about the MAC AIDS Foundation supporting programs for HIV-positive women and children.
The volunteers created really festive atmosphere: they engaged the women in professional makeup session and told them about the rules of skin care. Meanwhile, the women’s children were engaged in games by volunteer animators and staff in the bright playroom of the daycare center.  The mothers took pleasure to demonstrate their makeup, participating in a photo session together with their children. The action culminated in a gifts giving ceremony and tea: each mother was gifted a MAC cosmetics kit and a bottle for their formula-fed children.

We are sure that such events enable women with children to get distracted from their every-day hardships, meet with their peers in friendly atmosphere, and regain self-confidence.

We very much appreciate your participation which is crucial in improving the lives of HIV-positive women and children.
