On the eve of Easter, toy manufacturer Igor Hincu and volunteers from Germany and the United States of America organized a real celebration for the children of Ukrainian refugees, housed at a Placement Center in Chisinau. Together they cooked pancakes, and the children also had board games. The surprise was to the liking of the little ones, whom the war kidnapped from the joys of childhood.

The most requested were the chocolate pancakes prepared by a student from the United States of America.
