Dear Victor and Beverly,

On the first day of summer in Ukraine, as well as around the world, we celebrate the holiday of joy and children's laughter - Children's Day.  Happy children are the priority of every developed society.
Children's Day at the Revival Center is always a long-awaited holiday, which is accompanied by carefully prepared work, and entertainment program.  Every year on this day from the very morning the Center is noisy, festive, joyful, and full of bright mood.  Competitions, contests, gifts ...

Unfortunately, this year the quarantine made its adjustments to the traditional celebration of this special day.  It is unusually quiet in the Center today.  You can't hear children's laughter, joys, fun.  And we are extremely sad about that.
We look forward to the return of our sweet, sincere, kind, cheerful children.  After all, the commission on technogenic and ecological safety and emergencies on May 28, 2020 decided to ease the quarantine measures and allowed the Revival Center to partially resume work in compliance with all sanitary and epidemiological norms and quarantine restrictions and introduce a gradual exit from quarantine.  At this stage, without accepting children.  But we hope that the Center will accept children this month.

We wish good health, peace and harmony to every child, every family!  Inspiration and wisdom to parents and all adults whose hearts are full of love for children.
We wish you, dear friends to stay safe, keep well and we hope to see you again soon!

With love and thanks
Vasyl, Natalia
