Ani Lorak gives a show to foster children

This Saturday Ani Lorak gave a mind-blowing two-hour live show dedicated to the 20th anniversary of her singing career in the Kyiv Sports Palace. The show was produced by Oleg Bondarchuk and included complex stage decorations, numerous screens and even a car on stage. Philipp Kirkorov, Valeriy Meladze, Sergey Lazarev, Timur Rodrigez and the Ukrainian vocal sestet ManSound came to congratulate Ani and join her on stage.

The most special guests of the show were children from foster families and family-type children’s homes and their parents that came on the singer’s invitation from different regions of Ukraine. These children found new families due to the support of Rinat Akhmetov’s Foundation for Development of Ukraine and Ukraine without Orphans alliance. In August 2013 Ani Lorak became the voice of the programme “No to Orphancy” run by Akhmetov’s foundation. The programme runs an adoption portal www.sirotstvy.net that presents information on children waiting for adoption. Ani Lorak spent her childhood in an orphanage and believes that every kid needs a family. “I want all the children in the children’s homes to find their families. We just need to look around and share our love and warmth,” says the singer.

Sviatoslav, aged 7, shyly says “I like singing too. And I want to give flowers to Ani Lorak”. His father Vasyl Derevianko, head of the family-type children’s home fostering 7 children, adds that the boy is actually good at singin, has won several international competitions and hopes to make a career as a singer. His other son dances, and a daughter is good at painting. The children’s talents started to show after they joined the family, which is only natural, as, according to psychologists, a warm family atmosphere helps children express themselves.
