SV Productios presents Russian puppet theater Khokhloma with a puppet show performance The Rainbow Flower. Puppet shows by Hohloma Puppet Theater of Houston, producer and founder Elena Suvorova Philips. She and her artists will introduce fairytales to Austin public at first time.

Script: a little girl called Zhenya was on her way home from a store and met a lady who gave her a magical flower with seven petals each a different color of the rainbow. Zhenya uses the first one to get home and then 5 for various silly things. When only the last petal is left she uses it to cure a boy who could not walk. Its a kind yet easy to read and understand Puppet play.

Fly, petal, oh- East to West you go.

Then North to South and turn around.

Touch the ground, do, Make my wish come true. (Eng)

Advita Fund USA was founded in October 2007 (tax ID: 26-1300404).

Patients in Russia and the former Soviet Union face unique challenges:

  • lack of national bone marrow donor registry;
  • bureaucratic red tape that families have to struggle with to obtain governments treatment quotas;
  • lack of supporting medications that have to be purchased privately;
  • high cost of imported equipment and medications, and
  • inadequate federal financing of healthcare

As a result, thousands of children remain untreated, receive inadequate care, or run out of money long before the treatment is completed. While close to 80% of children with cancer are cured in the West, only 50% survive in Russian hospitals. We strive to close this gap.
Your donations are used to pay for bone marrow transplants, cancer drugs and supporting medications, and other necessary medical procedures.
The fund is staffed by volunteers only.
Thank you for your kindness!

Advita Fund USA is a volunteer-run organization - it means we pay no salaries to our staff and incur only minimal administrative expenses, so that most of the money we raise goes to patients we support.

You can make the donation at the ADVITA website
