I wish you happy New Year 2016!
New Year Eve is a good time to summarize the achievements and make plans fro the future. Thank you all for this very productive, good and joyful year 2015! With your aid, we have helped to 34 kids with finance and organization. We have collected EUR 85,000 and spend EUR 76,000. Thank you for your kind heart!
From coordinator Maria Podurominskaya:
ВСЕМ-ВСЕМ-ВСЕМ, кто участвовал в Благотворительной Рождественской ярмарке 19-20 декабря, – СЕРДЕЧНАЯ БЛАГОДАРНОСТЬ!!!
My warm thanks to everybody who took part in the charity bazaar on Dec. 19-20! Everything has been great! And the weather was fair and sunny – like the spring has come already 🙂 You all did everything to bring the feast to people. The visitors have got good impressions. Importantly, we have managed to collect significant funds for further help to our kids in need. So you can see how important and delighting is to work together for charity. Perhaps, the Diaconia can now pay the first course of treatment for Vlad S. Yesterday after the bazaar I visited him in the hospital. I have brought him from you some sweets and a ceramic bell. He had just finished a chemotherapy session and was exhausted. Yet after my stories about the bazaar he opened his eyes, smiled and said to convey to you:”Thank you, kind people! It is wonderful you are so many!”
And so we are approaching the most important time for benevolence: the pre-Christmas time. Even though we all know that all you need for helping others is an open heart and it opens at any time of the year!
Here are some of our November results:
- Arsenij Nikita, 5 years, from Murmansk, was diagnosed with rhythm disturbance of the heart. His treatment was paid for and has been successfully accomplished. The child returned back home. His mother thanks everyone sincerely for their help!

Cristmas and charity. Christmas and open-hearten kindness. These words have become almost synonymous ages ago. Have you ever wondered why? Why Dickens’ figure of a greedy old man, who does not want to show kindness even on Christmas, impresses so strongly as to make an English word for miserly person – scrooge?
