LAdS France has financed the purchase of basic educational Montessori toys set for Nikolaiev Baby House. This purchase was not easy. We couldn’t find a Ukrainian supplier for these toys. We had to order them from St. Petersburg (Russia). Russian and also Ukrainian customs authorities put forward all conceivable administrative obstacles in order to prevent the shipping company from delivering three cardboards with toys to Nikolaiev. With a delay of 4 months and some lost sleep everything arrived nevertheless at Nikolaiev Baby House!
