Following the call of the heart
A group of volunteer students of the 4th year of study of the specialty “Translation” of Sumy State University for the second year in a row give English lessons for children of Hematology Department of the Sumy Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital. Not everyone chooses to pass teaching practicum in such way, but those who are able to do it believe that it is a real call of the soul and heart.
This year during the period from October to November, 9 students with support from their teachers Olena Kupenko and Antonina Chepeliuk and with the help of Public Organization “Parents of Disabled Children Suffered from Cancer” taught English children, who are on the long-term treatment. The volunteers found the approach to each child, who was willing to study English, so the classes were not only boring learning of theory, but in combination with painting, physical activity or watching cartoons. Students brought children not only knowledge, but also the joy of communication. These kids are really needed of this, because during their shot lifes they have already faced with so many trials.
To be a volunteer in a children’s hospital means to lend a shoulder for support, don’t be afraid of running risks, because you doesn’t know as children to work with as all peculiarities of such cooperation. It’s all because of good business. It’s really great to aware that you can somehow help the kids, incline them to positive and at the same time combine it with studying.
