Students and teachers of Don Pedagogical College from the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don provided humanitarian aid to Makeevka’s school and kindergarten, according to Rosa Primavera News Agency’s report on 12 April.
Five boxes of office supplies arrived at the Makeevka School No. 40 and the “Young Birch” Kindergarten No. 124 from Rostov-on-Don as part of the program “Children of Russia to Children of Donbass” by the All-Russian Parents’ Resistance organization. Сhildren and teachers of School No. 40 and Kindergarten No. 124 thanked Rostov for its support.
“We are always happy to have any assistance we can get. In addition, establishing close ties with children and teachers from the Russian Federation is very important for us,” said Inna Rogulina, teacher from the School No. 40.
“Once again we have received aid from students of Don Pedagogical College. Thank you for not forgetting us,” said Oksana Cheban, head of the kindergarten.
In addition to paper, notebooks, pens, glue, scissors and pencils, students from the Rostov-on-Don University sent their letters to the children of the “Young Birch” kindergarten. In response, the teachers of the kindergarten sent a dove of peace to Rostov-on-Don together with souvenirs from the grateful parents and their children.
The activists of the “Essence of Time” movement gave a lesson of courage to the students of the School No. 40; they discussed the concepts of patriotism and protecting the motherland.
In 2014 the All-Russian Parents’ Resistance voluntary organization launched the program “Children of Russia to Children of Donbass”. As part of this humanitarian action, more than 300 Russian schools and educational institutions have collected and sent more than 46 tons of humanitarian assistance to the Republic of Donbass.
