Anna Kuznetsova, Ombudsman for Children’s Rights in Russia, handed out gifts to children as part of the “Wish Tree” campaign. She told about this on her personal page on Instagram on Friday, December 25.
So, a boy from Vologda named Semyon received a laptop, and a little resident of the Ryazan region, Alsou, was handed a bicycle.
“Today we distributed gifts together with colleagues in the regions. We talked, wished each other well in the New Year. I wonder who was more happy – children or adults? ” – wrote the Ombudsman.
Earlier on Friday, it became known that Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also took part in the action. The head of the Ministry of Defense promised to fulfill the desire of 15-year-old Yevgeny from Moscow, who dreams of a graphic tablet, while the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs promised to fulfill the desire of 7-year-old Alina from the Saratov region, who would like to swim with dolphins.
In 2018, the “Christmas tree of wishes” campaign was launched by Russian President Vladimir Putin, since then he has been participating in it every year. This time the head of state got a postcard from 9-year-old Dima from Chelyabinsk. The boy has acute lymphoblastic leukemia, he wanted to visit Moscow, go ice skating on Red Square and see the Kremlin.
Also, the Russian leader took a postcard from the tree from 10-year-old Alexander from Tula, who wanted to hug a panda. The boy’s dream came true on December 19.
At the moment, more than 10 thousand postcards have been disassembled in different parts of the country. The campaign of the “Dream with me” charity project will last until February 28, 2021.
