Dutch writer Henri van Rens, partner of the International Eurasia Press Fund, shared his impressions with Ednews about his visit to the Shelter of the Azerbaijan Children's Union:
Here is the interview:
- Let's start with your visit to the Children's Home...
- I had my own interest, and I went to cooperate economically with the union.
- What were your general impressions?
- At the moment, I can say that my general impressions are very good. I thank Chairman Kamala Aghazade for hosting me. I appreciate Kamala Agazadeh's overall performance. I can even say that they have opened their arms to more children than their total capacity.
- Approximately how many children are there in the shelter?
- 43 children.
- In what condition is the operation of that shelter?
- I can say with certainty that all homeless children were ready to open their arms in that shelter if they had the opportunity. But unfortunately, such a thing is not possible. Thousands of manats are spent every month. How many talented children's handicrafts are exhibited there. Those children are provided with education, food and care. It makes me happy.
- You mentioned your book before the interview. If possible, would you inform about it.
- I am currently working on a book about the last 35 years of the Karabakh conflict. My goal is to inform the world in particular, and mainly my people, to save them from the lack of information. My hope is to be able to donate a portion of the income from the book sale to the families of war victims and a small portion to that shelter. Because they really need financial support.
