These kind of relationships influenced the children on every level of their development (physical, intellectual, social and spiritual) There was a positive response from the management of children’s institutions; all of them expressed gratitude and joy, and they said that such events had been very useful for children in terms of emotional, social, mental and intellectual development.
The caregivers of the children admitted that behaviour of the children and the educational process became easier. They also acknowledged positive influence of constant visitors coming from the outside. They are now much more open for cooperation with Christian volunteers.
