Thank you all for your support!
Our volunteers, despite the difficult times, continue to help. Now many families with sick children require support – financial, psychological, organizational- more than usual.
We are cooperating even more closely with many organizations, including those in Russia. In recent months, we have managed to provide humanitarian assistance on the spot thanks to the amazing project of our Moscow colleagues Galaktika Dobra (“Galaxy of Good”, galaktika.dobra at Instagram) that helps low-income families all over Russia.
Even more support is needed for our care-receivers, who, despite the quarantines and restrictions, manage to break through to Europe for a treatment. Sometimes this is the last chance to save a life. Sometimes the Lord sets it otherwise. But even then, we remain close…
Here are excerpts from a September report of a local volunteer group in Germany:
As many of you know, in addition to volunteer support for medical treatment in Europe and in the countries of the former Soviet Union, we also provide education and training for volunteers, educational programs, and rehabilitation programs for families with children who are sick or just underwent a severe illness. The project is called DobroMore and is based in Montenegro.
At the moment, we have an opportunity to purchase a wonderful house in the northern part of Montenegro and create a site there. This will not only allow us to run our programs all-year-round, but also provide financies for these programs.
The house is located in Durmitor National Park, Montenegro. It is one of the most beautiful and pollution-free places in Europe, in just 2.5 hours drive from the sea and from the southern branch of our center where we can carry out our programs off-season.
Thank you all for the support!

On Saturday 18-7-2020 in Dusseldorf our volunteers took part in the weekend fair. All funds collected are to purchase an orthopedic bicycle for our care-receiver Andryusha.
7-year-old Andryusha has cerebral palsy, and he needs an orthopedic bike for the development of the hip-joints and thigh muscles. The family lives very modestly, Andryusha is the youngest of 4 children. The parents cannot afford such a bike on their own. HELP GOOD TO HAPPEN!
