Where they work wonders: a family-type children's home congratulated Rinat Akhmetov Foundation


Longtime friends of “Say No to Orphanhood!" programme, the Basarab family, visited Rinat Akhmetov Foundation to congratulate its employees on the coming New Year and to give presents.

“This is the place where they work wonders. Thanks to you, our family is happy,” says mother-educator Natalia Basarab. “It’s an honour to be friends with you, to be supported by you. It's great to see the people who give us joy! You gave us beautiful moments of life, impressions, caring for children. When we discussed this topic at home, the children said: ‘Let's make gifts for the Foundation too!’”

The meeting was noisy and fun, the children presented drawings which they prepared for the holiday. Perhaps, only the drawings’ topic reminded that all the children in this happy family were adopted: the pictures showed orphans looking for their parents.

Mom-educator also did her best: she gave an embroidered picture with the logo of “Say No to Orphanhood!" programme, which she made in several evenings. “When children go to bed, their mother can afford to make such gifts,” laughs Natalia Basarab.

Dad Andrii quickly organized his three sons, and in a few minutes all the paintings hung out in all their beauty on the walls. Then the only daughter in the family, Uliana, asked me to give her gift - a colourful postcard - to Rinat Akhmetov. The text of the congratulation was immediately read out solemnly by the author: “Dear Rinat Leonidovych! Thank you for giving children care and a holiday! I'm happy to have a family! Please, come visit me. Uliana.”

Rinat Akhmetov Foundation also presented the family of Basarab with gifts, which were planned for the New Year by the parents.

 “I am sure, after learning the history of this happy family, many other people will follow their noble example. The Foundation supports such families. On the New Year's Eve we congratulate them and present with gifts from Rinat Akhmetov,”  said Natalia Baryshpolska, the head of “Say No to Orphanhood!” programme. “Natalia and Andrii Basarab took part in the video shootings for the eighth anniversary of our portal with the help of which almost 8,900 children found their loving parents.”

Saying goodbye, Natalia and Andrii Basarab shared the joyful news: they are going to take care of four more children.
