New Year performances are scheduled for this period countrywide. Heads of Republican public administration and local executive bodies will visit children's boarding institutions and family-type homes, hospitals, orphanages and foster families to congratulate boys and girls on New Year and Christmas. Officials will also render assistance in solving existing problems. Public associations and other organisations will join the charity event as well.
A New Year ball at Minsk’s Palace of the Republic will become the central event of celebrations – gathering students of cadet schools and specialised lyceums, winners of Olympiads, creative contests and sports competitions, students who’ve demonstrated success in social work, parentless and disabled children, as well as those from large, low-income and refugee families, among others.
The organising committee of the Our Children campaign is headed by the Deputy Prime Minister, Igor Petrishenko.
