Russia (Moscow Region & Office)
The Social Rehabilitation Center for Children in Pushkin City cares for children aged 3-18 years who are orphaned, homeless or in need of a safe environment.
Aspen Russia’s Moscow team of 12 volunteers made significant improvements at the centre much to the joy of the children.
The summerhouse, sand pit, swings, see-saw, dart targets and the ship are all favourite play area and these were beautifully painted and enhanced. The trees were whitewashed for environmental protection, while the gardens were weeded, gooseberries and flower were planted and the lawn was cut back.
The rooms were improved with the addition of new shutters (jalousie) and decorative paths were created around the swimming pool.
After all the hard work, the children enjoyed treats of sweets and biscuits as they played contently at the vastly improved rehabilitation centre.
