Simferopol became the second city to accept the action of the Foundation for Supporting Children in Difficult Life Situations "Formula of Trust" (the day before the event was held in Stavropol). More than 500 residents of Simferopol took part in the quest, which was held in the format of a scientific festival.
Parents and children united in teams and passed 11 scientific stations, where questions and tests from the field of biology, linguistics, psychology, geography, logic, art, genealogy, literature, physics and even astronautics awaited them. According to the members of the jury, the teams managed to complete the tasks the fastest at the stations "linguistics", "physics" and "art".
“Most of all I liked the tasks at the Linguistics station. It was very interesting to guess what this or that expression means, which our parents used once upon a time. And it's funny that the children guessed almost everything, but the parents had a harder time. But they did it too,”says Olya, a seventh-grader. Her team was the first to come to the finish line, having collected all the necessary elements of the very "trust formula" - phone numbers 8 800 2000 122.
Traditionally, the great interest of the participants was aroused by the sound tree, which was installed at the scientific station "Physics". Team members could listen to the story of a stranger and advise him on how to get out of a difficult situation. The guys gladly became psychologists of the children's helpline for a while. From their own experience, all participants understood: the success of a team, like a family, depends on its cohesion and trust in each other!
Opening the event, the Minister of Education, Science and Youth of the Republic of Crimea Natalya Goncharova congratulated the youngest participants on the Children's Day. “Guys, you are the most precious thing that your parents, grandparents, all of us have. Always be happy! Goncharova also noted that over the three years of operation of the children's helpline in the Republic of Crimea, more than 15 thousand people called the toll-free number 8 800 200 122. “Prosper, develop, we need you, and your help is very necessary for children,” the official said to the organizers of the event.
Participants of the event received commemorative prizes with the symbols of a children's helpline - so that the number was always at hand. And at the end of the action, everyone left their drawing on a large panel, on which the very formula of trust magically appeared - number 8 800 2000 122!
A single all-Russian number of children's helpline 8-800-2000-122 for children, adolescents and their parents was created in 2010 by the Fund to Support Children in Difficult Life Situations. In all constituent entities of the Russian Federation, specialists provide qualified psychological assistance. Calls from any mobile and landline phone are free and anonymous. To date, more than 200 organizations throughout the country are connected to the number. In 67 regions, the helpline provides assistance to its subscribers around the clock. In 2019, the children's helpline received the 9 millionth call. And for those who are afraid to make the first call, an online chat with psychologists works on the telefon-doveria.ru website.
