Volunteers of the ‘Transneft Western Siberia’ oil pipeline company, together with children from social rehabilitation centres and orphanages, organized a charity fair “A Gift for Mom”, timed to coincide with the holiday on March 8, VN.ru reports.
It is noted that in the context of sanitary and epidemiological restrictions, the fair was held online. It brought together more than 250 children from orphanages, boarding schools, and rehabilitation centres of Omsk, Anzhero-Sudzhensk, Krasnoyarsk, Ishim, Novosibirsk, and Tomsk. During the charity fair, any employee of the enterprise could purchase a handicraft product made by inmates of specialized institutions.
The event was aimed at helping children with developmental disabilities or those in difficult life conditions to fulfil their creative ideas. As a result of the action, more than 230 thousand rubles were collected thanks to the company’s volunteers. The proceeds from the sale were used to purchase gifts for the creators of the handicrafts. Also, the institutions were donated kits for creativity, stationery, toys, as well as equipment for sports events.
