“Last year we started receiving compensation from the department of social protection. The foundation provides these services independently, that is, by efforts of its employees. For example, “Yamine” is implementing the project “Ski of dreams” on the basis of the sports complex “Ice Arena”. We managed to rehabilitate 11 children from Salekhard, who then participated in the all-Russian competitions “Ski of dreams” and performed very successfully”, as the director of the foundation said.
“Yamine” also organizes art therapy courses, where specialists, together with artists and volunteers conduct practical classes. This year they managed to expand the boundaries of the project at the expense of funds of “Gazprom dobycha Urengoy”. Now it takes place not only in Salekhard, but also in Noviy Urengoy. The project proved to be very popular for children with different diagnoses. In the future it is planned to fulfill the project on a permanent basis.
