The Random Acts of Kindness Day (February 17th, 2015)

The Random Acts of Kindness Day, celebrated every year around the world on February 17th, has been recently adopted by many international charities. The holiday first began in the United States, but since then has expanded to the level of worldwide significance and is currently celebrated regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or religious beliefs.

This Day is best known in Western Europe and the United States, where it is traditionally celebrated with charity events such as marathons and includes appearances by celebrities, community leaders and politicians.

Unfortunately, this holiday remains largely unknown in Ukraine. However, a number of organizations and companies attempt to organize various charitable events on this Day. The main thing is that this special Day, as the organizers agree, reminds everyone about the importance of genuine and unconditional kindness.

Celebrating the Day of Knowledge (01/09/2012).

Today at cafe "Pampushka", located in the county center, took place the well-known and traditional celebration “The Day of Knowledge” dedicated to the beginning of a new academic year.

“Dniprovskiy Svitoch” properly prepared for the celebration – delicious autumn fruits and other treats ideally complimented the tables. Tasty beverages, filling hot dishes and salads did not leave anyone indifferent.

More than 50 underprivileged children, stripped off parental care, were invited to participate in the holiday. All of the children are registered with the "Zovtneviy" county center in the city of Dnepropetrvosk.

Animators transformed the cafe into a space ship and entertained the young crowd for the duration of the entire event. The celebration ended with the children receiving backpacks and other school supplies as prizes. As a part of their farewell, animators distributed kinder-surprise treats to every child. Kinder-surprise treats were graciously supplied by one of our sponsors.

The celebration of the happy holiday may be seen below.

Due to our efforts and efforts of our sponsors, a new cafeteria has been open, which provides homeless children with free hot meals. This new food pantry is hosted by the restaurant "Pampushka" that is located at ulica Chenishevskogo, dom 1 "B". This free cafeteria is open everyday, except for Saturday and Sunday. It is open throughout the day and the food is distributed by the coupons, only for homeless children and students from low-income families. Coupons can be picked up at the main office of "Dniprovskiy Svitoch" or at the social services headquarters of Zovtnev county, city of Dnepropetrovsk. Since the first of May, 2007, on the east side of the city, in the cafe "Zolotiy Bereg" (Donetsk highway) from 7:30 till 9:00 a.m. with also provide hot lunches for homeless and those who simply cannot afford a meal. We are hoping that besides children we will, at some point, able to accommodate, help and feed homeless adults, including those with drug problems. We are willing to, although not always able to, help drug addicts. We refer these individuals to drug rehabs, to help them overcome their addiction. It is sad and disappointing that we are simply unable to help everyone. Right now we are experiencing an even worse problem; our organization is struggling to provide enough food supplies to feed children. Priority right now is given to the youngest ones. We are turning to you for help. Currently there are estimated 100000 homeless children in the country of Ukraine, approximately 3000 in the city of Dnepropetrovsk. Besides running and operating the food pantry, our organization is working on many other multiple projects to better lives of little ones. One of our main projects is building a homeless shelter for all those in need of a roof over their heads. Also, among our goals is help and support to World War II veterans, young artists, scientists, and sports veterans. You can find a more detailed plan of our future actions on our website: We are hoping that you will not remain silent and help us with whatever material and moral support that we plea for.

This is our children!

Charity moments

«When they first came here, stuck to very constrainedly – boys did not speak with girls, and nobody showed emotions openly, - so Natalia Bridun describes the little guests of traditional eleemosynary child's morning performance. - Now holidays of schools, and not all our permanent participants were able to come». Natalia tells about a holiday which organized for children from poor families a benevolent fund «Dnepr svitoch». However, appearing in a hall, complete merry voices of children's, we could trust hardly, that boys, with enthusiasm playing with an animator, met first. Sometimes they yell so loudly, whatever I hear, what the director of Fund Natalia Bridun talks about. Now children, dividing by two commands are pigeon «pair» - try to represent hedgehogs. All of it years for ten, and even less.

Three years back the founders of fund set itself the not simple problem: to rescue kids ot the bad influencing of street and show that is on earth people which they are not indifferent. «Our organization is small, but we try to do everything, that in our forces. It seems to me that large companies in Ukraine are not interested in a person such by projects. Therefore among our members will not meet the proprietors of factories», - Natalia continues the story. However much it not at all embarrasses the founders of «Dnepr Svitocha». Majority from them has own business. «And yet conscience», - Natalia adds.
