In July, we have sucsessfully held our regular annual event – the Orthodox Volunteer Day. More than 50 participants from 8 countries have attended the Day. There were representatives of local Diakonia groups from 30 cities of Germany, Scotland, and the Netherlands, and volunteer organizations and charity funds from Russia, Israel, Belgium, Switzerland and Moldova.
The report, photos, and useful stuff are to be found at our website.
Thank you, dear donators: with you, in addition to common volunteer activities, we have managed to help to:
Anastasia Dubogryzova, 2 years, Blagoveshchensk, who has been sent home by German medics .We have helped to pay the travel and medicine required.
We have given the funds for everyday care and for forthcoming treatment to Tatiana Ovsyannikova, 35 years old, form the Belarus city of Borisov, craniopharingioma. Thank you very much!
In August, we ask you to help to Bagin family from Kirov. Two years ago their first child died yet at early stage of pregnancy. During the second pregnancy, the forthcoming daughter of Yana and Igor has been diagnosed with Spina Bifida, incomplete closing of the bones protecting the spinal cord. The intrauterine surgery can not be performed owing to multiple complications.
However, the doctors of Zurich university hospital are ready to provide the necessary treatment immediately after the birth. The required funds amount to € 143,000
HURRY TO DO GOOD!
yours Alina Titova
