ABOUT TWIG's CHARITY EFFORTS
TWIG incorporates charity events in its yearly calendar. The main funds for these events are collected through the yearly TWIG Charity Ball (usually taking place in February in the Hyatt Regency or Hilton hotel). In the past TWIG has supported several local centers for people with disabilities such as the Research Center for Disabled Children "Sanvikt", and Movement Theatre Company "Visage", as well as the "Mehribonlik Houses" (Mercy Houses, or orphanages) of Tashkent.
In the year 2019-2020 TWIG has worked with an organization for disabled people in Karakalpakstan, donating sewing machines (see the letter below). TWIG also collected money for other organizations, such as a home for disabled orphans in Angren, a city some 100 km east of Tashkent, and the Research Institute for Hematology and Blood Transfrusion in Tashkent.
So far in the year 2020-2021, we have been able to distribute Korzinka vouchers to wards of the Ezgu Amal Charity Foundation, and bring some happiness in the shape of toys and games to pupils of "Special School 52" - see below for pictures.
2020-12-11: At Korzinka Chilanzar, TWIG distributed 30 Korzinka vouchers of 400.000 UZS each to wards of the Ezgu Amal Charity Foundation, an organization dedicated to cancer-stricken and other seriously ill children from underprivileged backgrounds and their families. The foundation was represented by Munira Khojakhanova, Chair of the Board of Trustees.
(Thank you, Mukaddas Kuzieva, for liaising with the foundation! Thank you, Anna Lindenberger, for making it possible through your management of our Korzinka loyalty cards program! Thank you, Svetlana Ledbetter and Aika Nurgaliyeva, for putting in so much time and energy!)
2020-12-18: TWIG helped give the children of "Special School 52" a very special Christmas.
(Thank you, Gulshan Omonova, for initiating the Toys & Games Drive again this year! Thank you, Svetlana Ledbetter and Aika Nurgaliyeva, for again giving so much of your time and energy! Thank you, all of our wonderful members who donated so generously! Thank you to all who participated in any way - you made a lot of children very happy!)
2020-11-21: Gulshan Omonova and Svetlana Ledbetter accompanied "Santa" to bring toys to children being treated in the Research Institute for Haematology and Blood Transfusion in Chilanzar, as well as chocolate and other presents, such as hand and face cream, to the (very surprised!) mothers who accompanied their children.
