Congratulations with all the feasts just past! Let the New Year 2016 be better than the past one.
As usual, I give a short report for the past year.
With your aid, we have helped to 34 kids with funds and organization. Thank you for your kind heart!
Yet more sick kids and adults, and their families, have gotten the volunteer support. Thank you, dear volunteers!
We thank all organizers and supporters!
The bazaar took place in the church of the Intercession of the Theotokos on January 3. Pastry, hand-crafts and exclusive soap made especially for the event have been attracting the visitors of the bazaar. We have provided master-classes where children enjoyed making their own toys. Despite the ten-degree frost that reached Berlin on this day, there were quite some visitors: most parishioners have dropped by after the Liturgy and brought their friends and acquaintances.
We have collected EUR 850. Money have been transferred to the Diakonia account. It will be used for the treatment of Andrei Andreev, a boy from Enakievo with shrapnel in his spine.
Thank you all for your participation!
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!”
