This vitally important program, “Illustrated books for Small Blind Children” has been implemented in conjunction with the LUKOIL Group Organizations and the LUKOIL Charity Fund. As part of the program an embossed book publishing project entitled “Illustrated Books for every Blind Child” was launched. Doctors say that such books help visually impaired kids to develop an imaginative perception of the world around them, get the necessary knowledge and introduce them to the highlights of children’s and classic literature. In 2011 as part of the program the LUKOIL Charity Fund assisted in publishing of the one-of-a-kind “Tactile ABC” that in 2013 was supplied to the special care institutions in Volgograd Region.
Over the past years over two thousand sets of books were given to special care children’s institutions in St. Petersburg, Perm Krai, KhMAO-Yugra, Astrakhan, Volgograd, Vologda, Kaliningrad, Rostov-on-Don and Nizhny Novgorod Regions, Republic of Komi and other regions.
