In winter, trees suffer from bark splitting which is caused by frost. These frost cracks can be fatal for trees, so gardeners try to prevent and cure them. In Kuskovo, they combined curing with decorating trees.


Our great volunteers Irina and Vera invited the mentees of psycho-neurological residential institution (PNI) No.16 to have a walk around the city, for example, to visit Gorky Park or Red Square. The people from the PNI are adults, but for many of them it was their first experience of using public transportation. They became familiar with the places that every citizen of Moscow knows from childhood.


Today, the children from the 16th psycho-neurological foster house at Kuzminki Park visited the stables, got acquainted with the horses, got to stroke them (the blind visitor Andrey was especially delighted with this opportunity), and then made origami paper horses at the masterclass.


Today, the guys from the 16th psycho-neurological foster home went on an excursion to the Museum of Chocolate at the Babaev factory.


Our favorite traditional summer camp was held from 14 to 28 July. Children from an orphanage in Philimonki village and an orphanage in Mozdok (North Ossetia) visited “our family”. We were joined by children from Moscow-based psycho-neurological facilities and from an Armenian charity organization called “Warm fireplace”. We also welcomed volunteers from Moscow, Beslan, the USA, Denmark and Mexico!
