On the occasion of St. Nicholas’s Day fourth year students of Ternopil State Medical University, along with their supervisor, assistant professor of pharmacology Iryna Moseychuk, visited regional children’s home Maliatko, to share holiday spirit with the kids.
The future doctors showed a theater performance in which the main character was St. Nicholas. Children happily greeted their guests and reciprocated with recitations of nursery rhymes and songs. For these efforts St. Nicolas rewarded them with gifts.
Later, the students spent time with children, playing and talking with them.
“We all were very emotional and struggled to hold back tears, because it was so difficult to accept that such smart, energetic kids are deprived of parental love. At the end of the performance St. Nicholas and his helpers have promised that if the kids are nice they would return next year! “- shared her impressions Mariana Yaremyshyn.
