The staff of ICH has begun to purchase the items for the gift boxes that will be given to each orphan that attends the Christmas Performance. Many boxes are being arranged for these children and for the handicapped children and children in needy homes. The Christmas performance will be held in January, 2011.
Volunteers of ICH in Votkinsk visited The City Shelter weekly. They chat, play, draw, do origami with the orphans and build trust. Orphans ages 3 years old to 15 years old attend these meetings regularly. There are around 18 that meet on a regular basis. Meetings were held for "Families with many Children" which is entitled "Family Hearth." Tea, conversation with parents, games and contest for the children were held. Once a week "The Family Club" meet at the ICH Center in Votkinsk. This is the meeting of parents that have many children. They come to The Center with their children and have a rest and tea. It is a place to talk to each other, share their problems, support each other and to let the children play together.
The ICH staff and volunteers are grateful to all that support this ministry. May the Lord bless you, one and all.
