“Pat has been supporting “Maria’s Children” since her tour with Patch in 2004. The centre was created by Maria Eliseeva to help orphans and orphanage graduates in Russia to become full-fledged members of society by promoting their social, psychological and intellectual rehabilitation through various creative activities. They want to have as many happy, engaged and successful people in our society as possible!

Maria personally transitions around 300 orphans per year through her home equipping them with social and personal skills.

This photo, from my tour, shows us at one of the childrens exhibitions. We painted the mural with them while there.
