Holidays are coming!

The New Year holiday is an event which captivates 2016_1and motivates people all around the world, regardless of when their particular New Year falls. It is filled with familiar smells, sounds, thoughts and hopes, as well as the dreams of children contained in letters and secret bedtime prayers hoping to find favour with some magical bestower of wishes.

But what if the constant struggle against ill-health and the tests of life sap the strength and time of children and their parents and what if their 2016-3_3lives consists predominantly of doctors, examinations and hospital wards? That’s when the help of friends really comes in handy. Children have dreams, and our Foundation has the ability and will to contribute greatly towards them. After reaching agreement with parents, we have purchased New Year gifts for the children in need.

We tried to fulfil children’s dreams with care and as accurately as possible. It was just as much a gift for us to search, choose, order and receive these very special gifts for very special recipients. The corner of our office resembled the ‘to be delivered’ section in a toymakers workshop for a few days.2016_2_2

There were ice skates and a rainbow hammock for the Shishkov family; cosmic sand and a developmental musical toy for the Bobrov family, along with a talking steering wheel for the Galkin family. All of the gifts were so enjoyed by our little children in care and their brothers and sisters.

Giving gifts is a joy, but receiving is also pretty good too! Priceless gifts were received by the Foundation from the Shishkov family. On the windowsill in our office now live two penguins, as well as a beautiful 2016_4garland made by Veronica Shishkova, which was crafted from cones and cotton. On the wall hangs a winter picture painted for us by Nikita Shishkov. We give our heartfelt thanks to all of the precious children!2016-5_1

Here at Metaco, we heartily congratulate and send best wishes to everyone for the upcoming New Year and Christmas! Let all adversity remain in the past, and let the New Year bring only happiness!
