Today, a real New Year holiday was held for children from the Almazov boarding school, Schelkovo district of the Moscow region.
The team of Renault Russia CJSC brought new clothes, shoes and many important individual gifts to children. We have not brought sweets to children for a long time. Nomes know how important it is for each child to emphasize their own peculiarity, develop a taste, get the opportunity to express themselves, and just be well-dressed.
It is no secret that according to the norms, the orphanage can provide each child with a limited number of clothes and shoes. Basically, the state budget institution buys clothes and shoes through a tender. The tender is won by suppliers who offer the lowest price, sometimes 60-70% below the market. But what quality can these clothes be? There are often difficulties with this. Another problem is the “uniformity” of clothes and shoes in orphans. Often, even senior officials complain that “our orphans are immediately visible” at cultural events among children. They are marked with this official uniform. Thanks to the participation of caring people, children also have their own individual clothes every year. Every year, company employees find an opportunity and with great attention and care collect gifts for children from orphanages.
In addition, the company also takes part in the action and this time new furniture was purchased for the orphanage – beds and a chest of drawers, rugs and other things to equip a new bedroom and make each room more comfortable for children. After all, even if the children live in a boarding school, at least there, every day, they should feel at home, where it is warm, cozy and calm. At home, where they take care of you, they love you and where the guests come.
In turn, the guys prepared an amazing New Year performance. Each got its own role and opportunity to show their talents. Even the guests had to participate in the performance. And all this is an expression of gratitude from the children.
Do not believe that coming to orphanages with gifts is a bad tone, it is impossible and harmful for children. Children should be well fed and well dressed. And of course, they will be pleased with new toys. And of course, new gadgets will also delight. Because, actually, the main activity of people from 0 to 18 years old is at least a game! So children develop. The state could not and will not be able to close these needs only on its own. The state provides shelter for children, constant accompanying adults, provides at least a minimal education, health care. But this is immensely small and far from everything that children need. Therefore, there will always be a place for charity and good deeds.
Today we were very happy about new things for children! We thank Renault and its caring employees! We hope that this good tradition will continue.
