Sheredar is Opening!

May is approaching and we are looking forward not only to the double May holidays, but also to the opening of the Rehabilitation centre for children who have suffered from serious illnesses, a milestone event for the Sheredar Charitable Foundation supported by BKC-IH Moscow. The Rehabilitation centre is a unique state-of-the-art complex located in the picturesque village of Sosnovy Bor, Vladimirskaya Region and comprising 26 guest houses and 2 administrative buildings.


Celebrities, as well as members of other charitable organisations and state officials, have been invited to the Opening Ceremony on 14 May, 2015. Just a couple of days later, the Centre will welcome 42 children and volunteers to the 11th rehabilitation programme session.


With only two weeks until the Centre opens, preparations are in full swing. Volunteers have just planted about 2 500 tree saplings around the Centre.


We post photos and regular news updates on social networks and you are very welcome to follow us (www.sheredar.ru, www.facebook.com/sheredar, www.vk.com/sheredar, www.instagram.com/fund_sheredar).
