30th Alliance Anniversary CAMP - REHABILITATION CENTRE, Armenia, 10.8.-24.8.2012
The aim of this camp is to organize the leisure time of children with motor-system infringement and cardio-vascular system diseases - volunteers come together with children to draw, sculpture, sing and dance, do physical training, play games. At the end of the camp volunteers and children will organize a farewell party. Volunteers will bring along a lot of ideas, spirit, love, warmth, kindness and make the stay of these children in this Center a great holiday. They make these children feel that they are needed, full-valued and help them to open their talents and abilities.
Volunteers will also do some environmental work: maintaining the territory, cleaning children’s playground from weeds and grass, painting and some renovation work.
