Belarus’ PM joins Our Children charity campaign

MINSK, 20 December (BelTA) – Belarusian Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov gave New Year gifts to students of the Molodechno Special Boarding School on 20 December as part of the nationwide New Year charity campaign Our Children, BelTA informs.

Andrei Kobyakov extended his New Year and Christmas greetings and wished the students and teachers all the good things in the coming year. “All of you need to work hard and, first of all, study hard for your dreams to come true. This is why I wish you the best grades in the coming year. I want each of you to feel happy in 2018,” the PM underlined.

He recalled that the students have some good examples to follow: 14 graduates of the boarding school have become outstanding athletes, 12 of them won medals at Paralympics, including Vasily Shaptiboi and Dmitry Salei. “These boys have proven they can excel in life. I believe, each of you has such a possibility, too,” Andrei Kobyakov said.

New Year is the time to sum up the results and take a look at how the plans have been implemented, he added. This year, two more schools and 13 kindergartens were opened in Belarus. “We try to pay as much attention as possible to you, kids, so that you have a comfortable life in your schools and kindergartens,” Andrei Kobyakov stated.

He gave the school an interactive multimedia blackboard, sports equipment, and candies.

The students made some thorough preparations for the visit, said director of the boarding school Natalya Glinskaya. “They rehearsed for several hours every day as they wanted to impress our prime minister very much. It is a great honor for us to welcome such a high guest at a New Year party. Of course, the second thing is gifts. The kids could not wait to get them,” she recalled.

Andrei Kobyakov got familiarized with the school’s facilities and resources, learning and living conditions.

Taking part in the event were First Deputy Chairman of the Minsk Oblast Executive Committee Igor Makar and Chairman of the Molodechno District Executive Committee Alexander Yakhnovets.

Set up on 1 August 1964, the public educational institution Molodechno Special Boarding School is a special educational center for visually impaired children in Minsk Oblast. There are 104 students in the school, including 27 orphans and children left without parental care, and 72 children with disabilities.

The nationwide Our Children charity campaign is running in Belarus from 11 December 2017 through 10 January 2018.
