I wish to express my deepest gratitude for the help in finding money for surgery to my boys, Yaroslav and Danil. Also, many thanks to Maxim Karagodin. He has spent the whole day with us in the clinic, and accompanied us to all rooms. I can’t even imagine what we would do without him. The surgeries were successful. We are already at home. Now there will be a restoration. They will begin to study soon: at the moment, only on Skype, since they still have to lie.

Our care-receivers say: first program period Dobro More

We visited a wonderful place and participated in a magnificent program called “DobroMore”. The program is organized by the Russian Orthodox Diaconia “Good Deed.” They invited us to Montenegro, organized everything from arrival to departure, they thought out everything to the smallest detail. It’s hard for me to imagine how many months the team worked on preparation of our 6 days going so great. Read more

Thanks from the mother of Bogdana K. – Respected brothers and sisters!
I am thankful for your help to Bogdana – this was yet another step towards our goal, her first step!
On September 12, 8:00 there was a 4-hour surgery, Bogdana could stand it well, and was quickly dismissed from the reanimation unit since she felt well.
It took her some time to recover from anasthesia, yet she began to joke and smile soon.
The doctors made everything planned and told that Bogdana is a very good girl !!!

The celebration of the birthday of the boy called Vanya Kaliberda, 9 years old, oncology.
The feast was well-timed in a break between the chemotherapy blocks, so Vanya was able to actively participate in a rich program and play for 4 hours with new friends exploring the mountains of his favourive Lego stuff.
Many thanks to the volunteers of Essen, and their children, who shared this joyful and exciting day with Vanya’s family!
From the parents: deep appreciation and gratitude!

Dear volunteers of Diaconia “Good Deed”!
From the bottom of our heart, wholeheartedly, we thank you for your constant efforts and care for our family. It will be soon 7 years as our daughter Arisha and we have been going through – first the treatment, and then the control at the Uniclinic Cologne. All this time we have been parishioners of the Russian Orthodox parish in Porz. With no exaggeration, you have been with us in all difficult moments, supporting us with the prayers and good deeds !! Low bow to you from our whole family!
February 3 is the birthday of Arisha! This year we could not prepare properly for this celebration, since she was a little unwell. Yet a real feast was arranged for us at the parish: we have not received so much attention and gifts for a long time! Thank you very much! And special thanks go to the coordinator of the Cologne group of volunteers. Thank you again!
