Charity Christmas cards in aid of disabled children in Moscow

A photo of snowy birch trees by French filmmaker Thibaut Branquart, and a
painting of a church in Pereslavl by Russian artist Grigory
Tsyplakov-Taezhnyi grace two charity cards in aid of the Russian
charitable foundation Humanitarian Programmes Support (HPSCF, Patron Dame
Helen Mirren), established in 1998 to improve the lives of disabled
children and their families in Moscow.

The church cards measure 14,8 x 16,3 cm and come in packs of 5 cards with
C5 envelopes, costing �3.00 per pack. The birches measure 10 x 15 cm, with
C6 envelopes, and cost �2.75 per pack of 5 (pictures pasted below).

Cards may be purchased blank or with the greeting �Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year�. Money raised will support HPSCF projects, including a
nine-month structured programme where children attend therapeutic
playgroups with input from qualified professionals (including a speech
therapist), while parents engage in group work and individual counselling
with a psychologist. HPSCF also provides a telephone helpline, legal
advice and peer support, and helps families secure school places for their
children. All services are provided free of charge to the families of
disabled children.
