A Tribute To Ira Polyashova

Ira Polyashova, who sadly lost her battle with cancer this year, was an inspiration to everyone who met her – especially anyone who has been involved with the Dnipro Kids Appeal over the years. She has played a massive part in everything we have done…from our very first visit to the TB Sanatorium on the 28th of September 2005, right through to the orphanages trip to Kiev shortly before she passed away. This is our tribute to a wonderful woman – Ira Polyashova.

Dnipro Appeal – Trip To Kiev

Last week, Dnipro Kids took 50 extremely excited children to Kiev for four days of fun and adventure. It was a trip the kids said they had been very much looking forward to ever since they were told about it six months ago – and they weren’t disappointed! Day 1 The kids and their orphanage foster parents travelled from Dnipropetrovsk to Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, by train and checked into the Goloseyevskyi (40 Years of October) Hotel. After grabbing a spot of breakfast, they headed out for a bus tour of the city to check out...

Dnipro Appeal Update – January 2015

Firstly I’d like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and all the best for 2015. I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and that Father Frost (aka Santa) was good to you. We certainly tried our best to make sure that the kids in Dnipropetrovsk had a memorable one. This was, in no small part, thanks to the ongoing sponsorship of the kids, the generous donations received and the generous support in Ukraine from Carlsberg Ukraine and Kyivstar. Without your support we would not be able to support the orphanage kids, and to provide them...

November 2014 Update

September Topolinaya Orphanage Graduations  In September there were 22 children that graduated from school, and left the orphanage. All the kids are expected to enter colleges and universities, and move into student accommodation. Although just less than half of the children were ones that Dnipro Kids had sponsored, a couple of them through 3 different orphanages, the charity felt that we should support all those that were graduating. As with previous years the charity helped with purchasing food, gifts and sweets for the leaving party, as...
