The “Orphans’ Future” fund organized a tour of Galicia which was held in conjunction with the “Orphan Prayer Day” for 31 children, who are pupils of boarding schools of Ternopil region (from the town of Berezhany, Terebovlia, Ternopil and from the Novye selo village) During this tour they visited the “Limpopo” zoo in Medenychi, Lviv region. Also, children visited the “Oscar” dolphinarium in Truskavets, Lviv region.
That day children were excited and so happy. Moreover, they saw a lot of exotic animals which are living in the zoo by they own eyes. The children didn’t know that such animals like white tigers, bears, white wolves, lynx, monkeys and hamadryls.
The visiting of delphinium was a great surprise for the children, but a month before they wrote some letters with their wishes where they asked to go there. I can’t tell what were the children's emotions while watching dolphin speeches. The children were very impressed with the clever dolphins, who skillfully showed different tricks in the pool. However, most children have realized that the life of dolphins is not easy as they are in captivity and this upset the children
Our Foundation would like to thank the Directorates of the “Oscar” delphinium and the “Limpopo” zoo for free tickets for orphans.
This excursion tour was made with financial support of Khrystyna Tryhub and her friends (The town of Ternopil) and Real Men Real Style (USA)
