How Latvia and Kazakhstan deliver events for kids with special needs.
The Embassy of Kazakhstan in Latvia and the Department of Culture of Riga City Council have organized an exhibition of children’s drawings, whose authors are children with special needs. The project aims to show that despite having difficulties, possibilities these children have are limitless.
The exhibition is dedicated to the International Children’s Day and the 30th anniversary of independence of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It features drawings by 60 children. The endeavor was approved by Riga Mayor Martins Stakis.
The works of young talents were provided by Kazakhstan public charity fund to help children with disabilities “Ayalgaan alaqan” (“Hands of Mercy”) and the Latvian Association of Children with Disabilities (LBAKT).
Elina Grantina, head of the Culture and Art Center at the Riga City Council Culture Department, said about the exhibition:
“The Embassy of Kazakhstan in Latvia and the Department of Culture of Riga City Council are sure that each view of drawings online, will give children with disabilities a sense of confidence, kindness and belief in the right.”
The exhibition will be open on the portal of the Department of Culture of Riga City Council until July 1, 2021.
Also, at a recent meeting with the Ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan to Latvia Timur Primbetov, Dears from the Latvian Dimash Qudaibergen Fan Club talked about their charitable activities as part of the “Box of Courage” program, in which they have been involved for almost a year.
This program is designed to help children undergoing treatment of cancer, the undergoing of which in many cases is very painful.
To make it easier for the child to tolerate the procedures, the so-called “Box of Courage” was created, which contain toys and sweets that children receive after the course of treatment.
Over these years, Dimash’s fans have donated several of such boxes to the Riga Children’s Clinical Hospital. This idea has been supported by the fan clubs of Kazakhstan, where Svetlana Aitbayeva initiated a similar action. After all, even a small toy or a sweet can make a sick child’s treatment easier.
