I hope that your mind is not totally absorbed by thoughts about pandemia, and there is a room to feel real life – and, if you wish so, you can feel how steadily you stand on a floor, either cold or warn, how a fresh wind or a warn sun ray touches your skin, what is a view from your window… To live in a moment, here and now, is very important for preserving harmony and keeping in good spirits. Also, for being able to help others in this difficult time. Help to those in hospitals, or orphaned, or under arrest, or diagnosed with grave illness, those who take care of an ill child… To all those in fear.
Now we are close to each other as never before. We can feel from inside the state, feelings and thoughts of our care-receivers, people who constantly fight a dangerous and grave disease.
It is important to remain human and support each other now.
We are in need of each other. Our prayers, time, money, spiritual and physical powers are needed. The Resurrection of Christ is close by!
Thank you for being with us!
Our volunteers in Germany and other countries solve now difficult problems related to the transportation restrictions between countries and cities, isolation of the families. We bring food to trapped in quarantine in a foreign country, take care of those who cannot come home after the treatment, provide a psychological support. At this difficult moment, we are with our care-receivers.
Excerpts from the reports of the coordinators of our local groups:
“In March, we have helped, also with translation, to the family of Sasha P. and Yaroslav B. Both boys have undergone complex surgeries: brain tumor removal by Sasha, open heart operation by Yaroslav. Because of the situation with coronavirus, people living in the Ronald House have been resettled. Five families of our care-receivers have been placed to a hotel under strict quarantine. We bring the food and everything required, and always keep in touch…”
“We have met the S. family at the train station, escorted and translated in course of the consultations at the university hospital. The surgery is scheduled for the end of April… We brought to three families in elderly home the insurance payments. We support the families psychologically: on-line and on phone.
For new care receivers from Russia – Elena B and her son Alexander, 3 y.o., neuroblastoma – we have bought and brought the food and household items required. Owing to quarantine and weakened immune system after a chemotherapy course, they just cannot leave the flat they live in. We have kept contact to minimum exercising all precautions – masks, gloves, short visit.”
With your help, in March we have managed to support financially the family of Artem Agarkov, 7 y.o., Vogodonsk, Russia, organic damage to the CNS, a big family in harsh circumstances from Orenburg, and also The monastery of St. Spyridon in Gailnau, where they organized a care for gravely sick, now departed, mother Lukiya (Prudnikova), 68 y.o., terminal lung cancer.
In April, our help is awaited by:
