Putting their presents from the BBH Group staff into their bags, the kids went back to their places. They also carried along their emotions and vivid impressions to share with their brothers, sisters and friends who could not come to this holiday in Kyiv.
According to their teachers, this event was one of the brightest in the children's monotonous life without parents' warmth and care. Most of the pupils were in Kyiv and spent a whole day so far away from their childrens' houses and orphanages for the first time. This New Year trip was one of the few moments in kids' lives when they felt really happy and not alone. Sincere smiles on their faces, excited eyes and strong good-bye hugs are an indisputable proof of the necessity to hold such actions.
"Organizing this children holiday, we tried to give part of our warmth, attention and love to the kids who for a variety of reasons were abandoned by their parents. Kids who face cruel reality in their early lives should not lose faith in fairy tales and wonders. We wish that they know that there are caring people in this world who will not abandon them and will help to become valuable members of the Ukrainian society," said Petr Chernyshov, the CEO of the BBH Group in Ukraine. - "This is why our company pays much attention in its activities to orphanage and children's house pupils of Ukraine."
