Lenara Ivanova urged to give useful New Year gifts to children from orphanages in Bashkiria
On November 26, the Deputy Prime Minister — Minister of Labor and Social Protection RB Lenara Ivanova appealed through social networks to caring business partners and volunteers who prepare New Year's gifts for children from social shelters and orphanages every year.
Lenara Ivanova urged to give children useful toys instead of sweets.
"Most often, sweet gifts are presented. There is always a lot of them, and every New Year's holidays, educators worry about the health of the children: allergies, exacerbation of the pancreas, toothache," the minister wrote. "Turning to our partners, I propose to teach children together to a healthy lifestyle: healthy eating and interesting activities. Dear friends, give children toys, board games, games for creativity and sports, coloring books, postcards, beauty and care items for girls. All this is more useful and gives emotions for a long time! I really hope for understanding!"
Now there are almost 1,200 children in children's institutions in Bashkiria. There are more babies from three to seven years old in orphanages, children from 11 to 15 years old in orphanages. Moreover, there are more boys than girls.
