During the week before Easter five young people from Corduff community youth project as part of Foroige's youth citizenship program visited Cherven children's orphanage. The group were joined by Deirdre Walsh, “Foroige” and BCP's Brian O'Sullivan. A fantastic week was experienced by all as the group spent time working across the different units and delivering organized activities such as a trip to the cinema. A number of local families were supported in the local community and Medication was also purchased for the orphanage by the groups fundraising. Deirdre Walsh who facilitated much of the trips planning said ' the trip had a very positive impact on the young people who travelled, an opportunity to experience another side of life and the work of the Irish charity'.
Another group of nine volunteers went to Gorodische orphanage where they spent a lovely week with children trying to cover all the units and see all the children. Lots of games, parties, massage sessions. And sure lots of happiness for both children and volunteers!
We thank our volunteers for the fantastic time they spent in the orphanages and those smiles that are most precious!
