Seven sisters of mercy visiting Germany
Seven sisters of mercy from St. Dmitry school in Moscow have visited Germany from October 19 to 24. The visit took place in the framework of collaboration between the Synodal Department for Church Charity and Social Ministry of Moscow Patriachate and our diakonia “Good deed”.
The guests from Russia have visited 4 clinics, 3 retirement homes, and a hostpital of Karl Leisner catholic society. All these installations are situated in small towns of Cleves region of North-West Germany. The sisters of mercy from Moscow had an opportunity to work together with local medical personnel and thus to learn the duties of German colleagues from inside. Both sides were satisfied with the exchange of experience that took place, and hope to continue the fruitful cooperation.
18 people were involved in this event and its preparation – those are Diakonia volunteers and our friends from 6 parishes: Dordmund, Dusseldorf, Krefeld, Cleves, Nijmegen and Amsterdam. We thank everybody who helped!
