Pre-Easter charity bazaar in Munich

Dear friends!
our Pre-Easter charity bazaar in Munich has been successfully held yet another time.
We are very grateful to everyone who responded and supported us! Every year, more and more of you do so! It is very, very pleasant that such projects find a response in your hearts, and we hope that we can continue to help children with you together!

 The parcels with handcrafts for the bazaar came by mail from all over Germany and the needlewoman of Munich, by the established good tradition, have actively responded! We are grateful to everyone who helped to prepare the table with lean pastries – with each bazaar held it becomes more and more varied and increases in quantity!

Together we have collected a significant amount, the money has been transferred to Diaconia Good Deed account, https://www.orthodiakonia.de. This amount does not cover all the necessary expenses, but gives hope and faith in the healthy future of these kids!

We raised funds to help Daniel L. from Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Russia. He is 7 years old and all his years of life he is forced to fight with serious diseases. Dani has a child central paralysis, microcephaly, epilepsy. Unfortunately, in Russia they cannot help Daniel. The cost of his treatment: 6,200 euros.

The 2nd child we help is Olesya B. from Perm, Russia. She is 6 years old. The girl was diagnosed with congenital heart disease, and she requires an open-heart operation with the use of a heart-lung machine. Parents chose a clinic in Leipzig with the lowest cost, which is about 30,000. The amount for the operation for Olesya that remains to be collected: 7,500 euros

Your kindness makes our world better and cleaner! Thanks to all who helped organize the event, to everyone who came and purchased the goods and pastries!
We really appreciate and love you! & # X1f917;
