Miriam’s Report from Belarus

2012-12-30 Miriam O'Sullivan being interviewed before her trip to BelarusI would like to again say a sincere thank you to everyone who helped me fundraise for my trip to Belarus. It was an amazing experience, one which I will never forget. It was a very busy week, we had long days and we were constantly on the move. We were split into groups each day and each group worked in a different part of the orphanage: the music therapy cabin, the gym or the therapy room. As it was Orthodox Christmas during our trip, we dressed up in Santa hats on Christmas Day to entertain the children. We also put on concerts for the residents in other institutions, which you can view clips from in the video below. My time in Belarus was extremely rewarding and one which I hope to repeat again in the future – Miriam O’Sullivan
