Fanciful Holiday Performance for Disabled Children
Actors of the theater of the Ukrainian Society of the Deaf gave a charity performance for some two hundred disabled children from across Kyiv
Then the fairy tale began- a theater performance that incorporates song, dance, and sign language for the hearing impaired.
Organizers said that children love and anticipate these holiday spectacles. The Christmas event’s been happening for over 10 years.
“We see them often; children in wheelchairs, visually impaired and with mental illnesses. But every year they come to this holiday event not just for gifts, but also for communication. They are incredibly sensitive and believe in miracles,” Iryna Yuzhanina, a worker at the Kyiv City Administration Department of Social Politics said.
Right after the show, guests receive gifts brought by volunteers from Germany.
“In Germany, we arrange similar shows for children from different countries. People buy gifts themselves, pack them and bring them to our foundation,” said a volunteer.
And organizers decided that they’ll deliver gifts to those children who weren’t able to make it to the show.
