A recent report from the government of Sverdlovsk stated that philanthropists from the Sverdlovsk region helped create a new year’s celebration for disabled children from Polevsky.
The philanthropists donated a Christmas tree as charity for the children.
Children of Russia, a charitable foundation, created a “tree of wishes” for the children. The children designed their own cards. The youth wrote about their dreams for the new year inside each of the cards.
The children received a wide range of gifts — tablets, bicycles, toys, cell phones, a wheelchair, and a trip to Moscow — as part of the celebration. There were more than 30 gifts for children with serious illnesses, such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy and Down syndrome.
Saburov Pasha, an 11-year-old with bad eyesight, received the trip to Moscow certificate. The journey is scheduled for early 2015. Pasha has dreamed of visiting the Kremlin for a long time.
"The most bright and happy memories we have are related to the magic of the new year,” Andrey Zlokazov, the head of the Ministry of Social Policy, said. “Most kids believe in it. They look forward to these miracles, and [it] is very good that there are people who can give them a Christmas tale. This is especially important for those who are now in a difficult situation.”
Zlokazov and Vadim Dubichev, the first deputy head of the governor of the Sverdlovsk region, were instrumental to making the new year’s celebration a success.
