Art Therapy update

Almost six months have passed since the launching of the new art therapy rehabilitation program. It has become the most favorite occupation for all children at NBH. The project has overcome all, even the most optimistic prognoses and expectations. Children just love it. And the results are also incredible: the most “difficult” and closed children reveal their inner world, gain trust toward grown-ups.

Trip to Kiev with Artem and Yaroslav

Updated news regarding Yaroslav here!

Last week, March 17th, we made a trip to Kiev with two children from NBH to Kiev Cardio Center (KCC).

That was neither the first trip to Kiev for Yaroslav nor for Artem. Especially for Yaroslav it was a very important trip.
