With a Christmas party and many presents “For Our Children” foundation surprised the children at the Center for temporary accommodation “St. Dimitar” in the capital.
On the occasion of the brightest holidays, together with the team of the Center, we gave away a special experience to more than 60 children at the age from 0 to 18. The children received personally-picked boxes with presents full of everything which a child can dream of – toys, books, sweets, clothes, school supplies, and other presents. The children received more cordial wishes for the new year and the hope that it will bring them and their families many positive moments.
The special gifts were provided by Mrs. Svetlana Kamps from the Bulgarian organization “Dobra Sreshta” in Munich, Germany, which for a 9th consecutive year organized the charity initiative “Christmas in a box”. Its most dedicated virtues are the Bulgarian Orthodox Church in the city, Bulgarian families and their German colleagues and friends, DSV Road transport company with the leader for Bulgaria Mr. Yanislav Totev, thanks to which the children from CTA “St. Dimitar” received the presents.
We are grateful to our friends from Germany who, despite being away from Bulgaria, managed to give more than 60 children with a hard childhood a magical Christmas!
The partnership between the foundation and the Center for temporary accommodation “St. Dimitar” started at the beginning of this year. It gives children and their families, as well as the team of the center the opportunity to receive specialized support by a mobile psychologist, “Early childhood intervention” specialist and “Early child development” specialist of “For Our Children” foundation. The activities are part of the execution of the project “Care at early age”, financed by the OAK foundation. One of the goals of the project is to improve the development and the well-being of children at early age (0-7) by implementing an integrated health-social and family-oriented approach to the care for them and to pilot the social – health services for direct work with them and their families.
