Ruse Complex News
On June 1, 2011 a pirate ship full of scary seamen in all sizes went ashore and stopped in the Complex.
They had come in search of mythical treasures. Instead, they bumped into Clever Peter with a bag full of riddles accompanied by lots of children dressed in bright folk costumes, who had arrived on a donkey cart to celebrate the Children’s National Day. Clever Peter quizzed the audience and gave bags of treats to those who had the wit…
It is wonderful to forget a little about lessons when spring is in the air! Moreover, the 2011 school holiday was a little longer than usual.
But children don’t always know what to do when they have so much time on their hands. Therefore, the team at the complex decided to help children to diversify their holiday routine and organized a bunch of interesting activities for participants aged 6 to 18 years.
Over a period of 3 days extending from 24th to 26th February, 2011, staff from the complex manned a stall in Mall Rousse from which they sold martenitsi and greeting cards to shoppers and cinema goers.
The venture was a phenomenal success raising money that will be invested in materials and equipment to support club activity for children we work with.
On the 3rd October, 2010 the Complex celebrated its 5th anniversary. The party was on the 4th and took place in a very different way than before.
We’ve invited five talented musicians from the Music school in Ruse; also their teacher came to be part of the performance. They were joined by David and Antoaneta (our art-therapist) who also performed with their guitars.
A team of 5 – David, Eli, Georgi and Pavleta plus an experienced mountain guide and climbing coach – Matthew Mateev, who, along with David (another experienced mountaineer), ensured the children stayed safe and secure in the Great Outdoors while also providing information about the natural environment and tips about life in the mountains, rock climbing and the climate at high…
On 2nd July, 2010 a group of representatives of the Centre for working with street children (CRDU) and the Child Protection Department in the municipality of Suvorovo visited the Ruse complex.
The centre in Suvorovo is created to help children from families at risk aged 6 to 18 years old and has an operating capacity of 20 cases. The main goals of the Suvorovo social workers are to combat social exclusion and to ensure the children in question, who have…
On Saturday 26th June, 2010 Ruse Carnival reached its climax. A team from the complex took a small group of children to take part in the traditional procession among masses of other children from the city.
The children had worked with our colleagues from Arena Media to prepare dolphin masks which they proudly wore.
The evening was designed to mark the culmination of the ambitious foster care campaign orchestrated from the social services complex that has seen small teams travel the length and breadth of Ruse region and give presentations in 30 different towns and villages.
The Ruse Centre for Social Support has a tradition of staging children’s events on 1st June which is, of course, the International Day of the Child.
This year, we felt like doing something slightly different by extending the duration of the activities and throwing the doors of the facility open so that children from the neighbourhood could participate. This proved especially valuable for mums on what turned out to be a rather cold and miserable day.
On May 14, 2010 a group of 13 professionals from the centre for public support in Novi Pazar, visited the complex for social services for children and families in Rousse.
The service provider in Novi Pazar is the association – SOS women and children victims of violence, whose primary purpose is to create conditions for easing the lifes of families (formal and informal) who get into difficulties (crisis situation or risk).
