A project cooperation between the Lyoness Child & Family Europe Association and Lyoness Romania.
On 7th April, the Lyoness Child & Family Europe Association organized a new “Angel for a Day” activity benefiting 22 children from poor families in Galati.
Loyalty Merchants and Lyoness Members have again joined hands to prepare a great day for the children of the St. Spiridon Association, a day care centre where disadvantaged children can spend their
afterschool hours in a useful and pleasant way, under adult supervision.
For the 6- to 10-year-olds the day started with a visit to one of the biggest fish suppliers in Romania, where, much to their excitement, they were allowed to catch fish. After receiving supplies to take home as well as a fish-based breakfast, the children went to the Aquarium and then the Planetarium, where they watched a 3D movie about the Universe. This was followed by a rare treat for any child: the staff at Andromeda Caffe allowed the children to create virgin cocktails made of soft drinks in their favourite colours. While they were drinking their creations, they watched an animated movie, and got a short lesson in dental hygiene from Dr. Mihaela Moisei. Afterwards, they were rewarded for their attention with further presents.
But the best part of the day was yet to come! The entire KIDS ZONE, an indoor playground, was at their disposal, so the children spent the entire afternoon riding on slides, playing with colourful balls, running, and learning from a clown how to make balloon animals. Garden Pub Restaurant sent the children pizza, sweets and sodas, but that didn’t slow them down for too long, because they couldn’t wait to go back to playing.
At the end of the day, the 22 children received beautiful school bags filled with school supplies provided by Lyoness as well as personal care products and medicine provided by the Myosotis Pharmacy.
As always, our heart-felt thanks go to the Lyoness community, our Members and our Loyalty Merchants who contributed to this magical day.
We would like to thank:
The main goal of the project was to create an unforgettable day for the children who are supported by the Day Care Center St. Spiridon, together with partners and members. Besides the visit to one of the biggest fish supplier in Romania, the kids also had a lot of fun when visiting the Planetarium, during the much needed visit to the dentist, spending time at “KIDS ZONE” including a clown show and having lunch together with everyone. They also loved their presents, like the School Starter Kits and sanitary products.
