Macedonia - Providing school material for children in orphanages
The children from the orphanage this year went to school but unfortunately their school bags were left empty without school equipment for monitoring the regular classes. In order to ensure that these children can share beautiful learning experiences in school with all the other kids, Art of Living Macedonia organized a call for help, providing school equipment required for the 2010/2011 school year for children in the orphanage, in cooperation with members of the family`s website portal "Ringeraja" (http://www.ringeraja.com.mk/ )
'Indescribable was our joy that we can help and can contribute to these kids who never felt the family and parental love, to make them feel like a part of one big family and that they are not forgotten, to make then feel love and joy' the volunteers in Macedonia said.
