“The rehabilitation centre of “Yardem” foundation became a family for me. And not just for me. Probably, everybody will agree with me. For me the “Yardem” foundation associates with the mosaic. Because the mosaic takes shape from small pieces. All of people sitting here is that piece. So from these pieces friendly, family, warm mosaic got together.” – said our rehabilitant Artem Mironov from Petersburg on solemn closing of courses in “Support each other” project, which recently won the grant of RF President. By the way, the family theme sounded several times that day.
By the words of director of education-rehabilitation centre under NICF “Yardem” and the leader of the project, Malika Gelmutdinova, “There is no such beautiful feeling as feeling that you have made a drop of good. That’s why the motto of our project became the phrase: “From the drop of good starts the ocean of possibilities!”
