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:
After the death of Kirill, we have raised money to help his family. We visited them, talked to them, gave money. We keep in touch after their return to Russia.
We have compiled, translated and sent a letter to the Fliege Foundation with an application for 10,000 Euros for Alyosha for the necessary additional treatment. We corresponded with them and
have sent the extra bills from the clinic.
We keep supervising the families of Dima, Radmir and Ulya.
Dima’s farther is also sick with oncology. He underwent chemotherapy, and there was an operation in mid-September. We have translated the conversations with the doctor for him. We have collected some money, prayed for him, visited him on his birthday and drank tea with a cake.
The families have been brought to the church for the liturgy. We are incredibly happy to see them in the church and to talk to.
Radmir is undergoing tests this week for a possible relapse, as his leg began to hurt a lot. We pray earnestly for him.
We communicated remotely with the family of Eldar, they always have questions or requests – translation of letters, documents, scheduling visits to the doctors, etc.
We have helped financially the family of Ulya. We have found out from her mother what Ulya is dreaming of, and have already prepared a present for her birthday in November – this is “The Snow
We have compiled a text about the Ulya and posted it with photographs on the information stand of Diaconia for our donors and for all parishioners who pray for children.
We have a new care-receiving family – a boy Artem, 11 years old, neuroblastoma. We keep in touch with them.
We keep in touch with the family of Camila who has left us. We are looking for opportunities to psychologically support our mother, who cannot find comfort after the death of her daughter.
We have held another meeting of our volunteers on Skype, discussed situations for each family; updating information about the care-receivers at the “Good Deed” stand at the parish; money
collection, preparation of the children charity concert and the opportunity to broadcast it online, in particular, to the care-receiving children.
We all – donators, volunteers and care-receivers – are doing a great good deed together. We help the
Good to be in this world! And it is such a joy that we can support each other in this!
In October, help is required by:
