Project #6779

Help to provide vital massage for orphaned babies!

by Petersburg Parents

Dear friends!

We are happy to announce that the third phase of the project  Help to provide vital massage for orphaned babies!has started in the begining of September.

In its frame all the children from the psycho-neurological orphanage who need massage (more than 60 children) will undergo the third course by the end of this year – 15 procedures of manual therapy each.

The second phase of the project started in February 2011 and finished only in August – because of the chickenpox quarantine in May and June we were not able to work with maximum performance.

As before, three very experienced professional masseuses participate in the project, they help our children with serious disorders grow better and make progress, become stronger and healthier.

We are thankful to all donors who support this project!

Would you please also pay your attention to one of our projects which also highly needs your support: Nursing care for orphan children in hospitals - in frame of this project we help orphan children happened to be in a hospital without any parental care.

This project has been visited by Clint Misamore the Field Program Officer for GlobalGiving. You may see his report here GlobalGiving Visit With Petersburg Parents

Thank you!
