Some of these kids were born with a hearing disorder. In one of the leading clinics of Turkey  they had a surgery on cochlear implant - it is a unique surgical way of fighting deafness before which traditional hearing aids are powerless. Then children were put on special hearing aids – and they heard voices of their mother and the father for the first time! And those, who suffered from burns or had congenital heart disease, were successfully operated in Baku and they are now getting better.

Guests of honor at the fair like every year, were little residents of orphanages and boarding schools, as well as every year. Every Friday and Saturday animators and sponsors, participants of a fair organized for them a special program. The staff of fund visited those children who for some reasons could not come.

And yes, this year at restaurants and cafes of the city for the first time were installed personalized boxes for donations to Nargis fund. Thus, a number of institutions supported the fair "Cold Hands, Warm Heart" and joined realization of a main goal of the fair – charity.
