Musician, writer, curator of contemporary art Sergey Bakumenko and Elena Dovzhenko, a psychologist, told at a briefing on their philanthropic initiative.

In the image of Santa Claus and Snow Maiden, they visited the 103rd orphanage, where have arranged a holiday children with the distribution of gifts.

Seeing how openly, easily and sincerely little orphans perceive their performance, Santa Claus and Snow Maiden decided to give the joy of communicating with fabulous characters and other inmates of orphanages.

Elena Dovzhenko explained that children under the age of 1 year shaped relationship to the world, and it is important to give them joy and happiness at this time.

Sergey Bakumenko said that after the performance a little girl ran to him and said, “I believe you, you are kind”. After these words he broke down, crying and decided to give the joy of the holiday to the greatest possible number of children who cannot get parental attention and affection.

Elena Dovzhenko said that in an orphanage, she felt that light souls live there, and that to do good deads is simple.

Santa Claus and Snow Maiden are ready to perform for free, and the only thing they are asking the authorities or the administration of orphanages – to help with transport. To contact Santa Claus, please call +380930231605
