Students from Zlatarski International School organised a charity initiative, supporting the foundation “In Favour of Our Children”. On 2 February they managed to raise 320 BGN for the establishment of Children’s home for newborn children without a home and disabled children. The money was raised through the theatrical staging “Romeo and Juliette”, which was organised by the students themselves.
The students made lucky dips, which they gave out at the front of the staging before the performance to their classmates and teachers in exchange for a donation of 1 BGN or more.
“Good people and humanity do exist! More than wonderful is that we can find these qualities in the face of young people, who, on their behalf, form their earnest steps in life. Zlatarski School supports this initiative, but despite financial support, students wish to enrol in voluntary activities, such as the building and the repair of the house” – says the psychologist of the school Anna Jukivskaya.
On 14 February Victoria Kovacheva (12a), Veronica Bezinsky (12IB c), Elena-Avrora Kutevska (12IB c) and Petya Dimitrova (10b) united creative talent in organising a photographic exhibition for charity. By selling their pictures with romantic messages on St. Valentines Day they raised more than 370 BGN for the purchase of automatic surgeon knifes for painless blood taking at the Hospital for Active Treatment of Children with Oncohematological Disease.
370 Bulgarian Levs will be enough for the purchase of 7 boxes with 200 surgeon knifes in each box, which will vastly help reduce the pain of children with oncohematological disease. The money will be donated on 2 March, when 5 students from Zlatarski School will visit the children from the ward for oncohematological treatment, giving away “martenitsi” for the Bulgarian celebration of Baba Marta.
These “martenitsi” will be made on 1 March together with our guests from the High School of Tourism and Economics in Bar, Montenegro. Everyone is welcome to participate in the initiative!
