The Poludino orphanage is located a little over an hour from Petropavlovsk. It is home to about 44 children from ages 5 to 17 years old. The director of the orphanage is Yuri L. Children attend the local school in the village.
Since most of the children at Poludino are younger, Antares celebrates each child's birthday so they know they are special and important. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the Poludino Birthday Party Fund, please visit the main page for giving information.
