40,000 members of Citigroup from 100 countries took part in 700 simultaneous events this November 18th.
Citigroup’s volunteers together with HOPE worldwide-Russia (Nadezhda po vsemu miru) traveled to orphanage № 110 to meet real orphans’ needs and to spend time with the children.
It was a very productive day: volunteers from Citigroup and HOPE worldwide-Russia (Nadezhda po vsemu miru) painted the sports hall, did some repair work, helped fix clothes, organized drawing classes and karaoke classes for the children who enjoy singing. In the end, everyone was invited to a big birthday party, which has been held by HOPE worldwide-Russia (Nadezhda po vsemu miru) every month to encourage every child personally on his or her birthday. This time food, cakes and of course gifts filled the atmosphere with joy and fun.
As a result, everyone had an incredible time and the children and volunteers became great friends!
Mark Robinson, “Citibank” President, a head of Regional subdivisions in UIC mentioned: “Leading positions in international and local markets brings responsibility for the society we live in.
We took this responsibility and made a decision that we will do our best to change society for the good of those cities where we have our corporation. International Volunteers Day is a demonstration of this.”
