On March 18, on the eve of World Down Syndrome Day, which was announced by the UN General Assembly on March 21, the project “Creating good for the children of the Sun” was initiated in the library. The purpose of the project is to help the charity organization “House of the Sun”, whose efforts are aimed at supporting children with Down syndrome.
Children of the “Sun” are so called for a good heart, openness and sensitivity. It makes them happy just like ordinary children – games, noisy companies and surprises.
The library staff handed over stationery to the center – albums, coloring books, colored paper, pencils, etc.
There are no words to convey the emotional response of children, parents and educators of the center and the head of the charity Oksana Zyatkova, who met our wonderful employees – Irina Grabarchuk and Yana Shvydka. And, indeed, the gloomy weather of the day began to fill with rainbow colors.
Less than 15 minutes later, the little hands of the sunny children were already neatly painting, with their inherent diligence, flowers and cars.
We believe that our task is to accustom society to tolerance for such special children and to give a share of their warmth, attention and care, and not only on the day of the spring equinox.
And the plans for the future are an exhibition of works by talented sunny children in the library, to which everyone will be invited to touch a special art full of smiles and kindness.
