Deputy of the regional council, Chairperson of the Zhytomyr District Organization of the OPPOSITION BLOC Raisa Hula, told about this arrangement with Yuriy Panasyuk, Head of the Zhytomyr Regional Center for Physical Training and Sports of Invalids "Invasport" of Zhytomyr Regional Council.
The initiative of creating a center where sports could be played, contacting peers and simply interesting to spend time, children with special needs belong to representatives of the OPPOSITION BLOC. In particular, not only actively supported it, but also took on the main organizational functions of the head of the Novohuivynske Primary Party Organization Lyudmyla Olshevska. For her, the issue of supporting children with health problems is also personal. On her own experience - she has a grandson with cancer, she was convinced that when there is little help from the state, and it's about the issues of the child's life and death, it is very important to feel the support of people around him, to exchange useful information with them, to make the world around the child more interesting, so that bad thoughts and pessimistic moods did not add to the chances of the disease.
Now almost half a hundred children with special needs, including children of ATO participants, from Novohuivynske and Ozerne villages are ready to fight together with their ailments in the new center, set sports records and just enjoy communication, enjoy life. On New Year's holidays for them it was organized a visit to the festive performances in the Drama Theater, and those who could not come to Zhytomyr were brought home gifts.
"This is only the beginning. We have many plans to develop a branch of the center, we are looking for philanthropists who will help to equip it, to organize comfortable conditions for the stay and employment of children. I am sure that they will be found. We also hope that the indifferent local residents will respond and help to carry out this noble cause," Raisa Hula said.
