Help for Children’s Hospice – “Healthy Asia”
This Saturday, 4 Komanda SOS volunteers made their first visit to the Healthy Asia Children’s Hospice. The hospice director, Igor Fedorenko, kindly gave us a small briefing, and also introduced the staff and children at the centre.
“Healthy Asia” has a very cheerful and cozy atmosphere. As soon as they crossed the doorstep, our volunteers the children called the volunteers “theirs” and asked them to play (counting money). The offer turned out to be very tempting and impossible to refuse!
We are sure that our volunteers will be able to support this friendly team.
The “Healthy Asia” Children’s Hospice is a center for supporting children with cancer. On average there are 8-10 children with stage 4 cancer in the center every two weeks.
To make their lives a little happier, we are looking for volunteers. Their job is to play learning games with the children, engage in art therapy, dance, music, teach computer skills, or the basics of photo and video. Help is needed every day (the schedule can be discussed, and there are opportunities to help at the weekend).
Please note: the center is located in the village Kirgauldy – Almaty region, Karasai district,. Samal st, house 40 (8 km – from Sain Dzhandosov, or 1 km from the border of the city). You can get buses 401, 429, 428 from Sain Janzhosov in about 40 minutes.
* Note: when visiting the children volunteers must be completely healthy to avoid passing on infections.
