New Year’s festivities for orphans of the Kursk Region, held on 8 December 2013, were organised by the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation. They took place at the Yubileyniy Ice Rink in the town of Zheleznogorsk.

“New Year is Russia’s favourite holiday. The winter magic, surprises, gifts and an exciting show should all be present in the life of every child. So the New Year’s performances for the sponsored children’s homes and residential schools are a central aspect of the Foundation’s Assistance Programme for Children’s Social Services Institutions.

It is a very positive trend and we will do everything to continue fostering it,” — said the Director of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation Maria Krasnikova.
