"I know that people from China's Sichuan province like chili and rice, so our priority is to make sure every kid can have them everyday," said Vitaly Marzoev, director of the All-Russia Children's Care Center, in an interview with Xinhua Tuesday.

When the deadly earthquake that killed nearly 70,000 people in Sichuan province took place in May, Marzoev was on vacation in Sanya, Hainan province in southern China.

Upon hearing the disastrous news, he had made up his mind to invite some children from quake-affected areas to his center for recovery. He wrote to Russia's Ministry of Education and Science as soon as he ended the vacation and finally made it.

According to Marzoev, to get delicious food for Chinese children was his major concern. He even invited two Chinese cooks from Harbin in northeast China to prepare dishes of Sichuan flavor, fearing that the kids might feel uncomfortable with Russian food, he said.

Thanks to the Chinese cooks, the children now can have porridge and rice everyday. But the center has found it necessary to invite more. So four other Chinese cooks are on their way to the center.

Familiar chili and rice excited many students. However, Russian food such as caviar and sashimi was still too foreign for some Chinese kids. So everyday, Marzoev worked with his colleagues and experts to improve the menu. The center has even ordered some cornflour to suit the children's taste.

When told that the Chinese children loved Russian honey, Marzoev and the center immediately made the order from somewhere 600 km away, and had it on the table at breakfast time for the children as soon as possible.

To ensure the Vitamin intake of the kids, the center offered them various kinds of fruits, some of which were even specially ordered from northeast China. At the request of Marzoev, the daily fruit supply is still on the rise.

Apart from careful considerations on meals, the center has also made well-arranged preparations for the curriculums for the children, so that they can fully rehabilitate themselves in a relaxed, easy atmosphere during their stay in Russia.

"I hope that all kids can be optimistic and healthy when they leave for home. I want them to have plenty of outdoor sports here, and remember this place," said Marzoev.
