stay with me

Many years ago - when Chernobil disaster happened - kind people from Redeemer Presbyterian church in Winston-Salem joined the programm ABRO. They invited kids from Belorussia to come to USA and stay in their families for summer. Children could get a lot of sunshine, love and medical help for free.

Yesterday i was invited for a picknick. Belorussian children are here, in Winston-Salem again! Picknick was hosted by Larry and Kathy Shindledecker. Here are some pictures from the event. If you want to print a paper copy, let me know - i'll send you a big file. Don't forget to click on each image to enlarge them!( ©natalia)
