New Beds for Shelter Care C
A total of 12 new beds with mattresses were purchased for Shelter Care C. Sturdy bed frames and thick, firm mattresses will provide the kids with a safe, comfortable sleep environment. The kids love their new beds!
New Blinds for Orphanage A
New blinds brightened up the dining area for the kids at Orphanage No. A.
Washing Machine - Shelter Care C
The ladies working in the laundry room at Shelter Care C were pleased with the new washing machine we provided for them. It was in use while we were there, getting the job done so the kids would have clean clothes to wear for the coming week.
What do you get when you mix orphans and a love for hockey? A great opportunity to mentor kids in need! In January, 2012, Vadim began coaching and playing hockey with kids in Orphanage No. 8 on a weekly basis for 2-3 hours. New skates, hockey sticks, and protective gear were purchased with funds provided by Fory Charitable Trust and donations made through Houston's First Baptist Church. Vadim also takes 10 kids once a week to watch the KHL hockey plays of the Torpedos, Nizhny Novgorod's team. On a rotating basis, boys and girls from Orphanage No. 8, Orphanage No. 10, and Balakhna are selected to attend these games. Vadim purchases a snack for each attendee and uses this time to have conversations with the kids about their life in the orphanage, their behavior, moral life, how to be happy, what the golden rule is for life, and Christ. Vadim's time with the kids provides physical activity, social outings, and a time of teaching and learning for the kids. Needless to say, Vadim is very popular with the kids and they cry out "Vadim! Vadim Petrovich!" when they see him coming.
