Children sing to open SOS Children's Village Samarkand

11/06/2007 - Nine-year-old Dilmurod woke up at 6:30 a.m. as usual, finished his traditional morning gymnastics and went outside to water the flowers. It was the beginning of another day, but this morning was a little different from other mornings: the boy's home - SOS Children's Village Samarkand in Uzbekistan - was to be opened officially.
