It felt complete unity in the evening all Nikopol citizens. There were a lot people, who wanted to make a contribution- to the cash-box, placed at the scene. A very emotional appeal of one of the Nikopol schools representatives was very impressive.
They recently lost their pupil because to the fact that her mother was too shy to ask for help. Standing on the stage, she tearfully begged, but not to be silent about the fact that someone needs help. That she with her pupils will help; will take part in such actions.
