More Than 300 Refugee Children Now Reside in the Sviatohirsk Lavra

A Pravmir correspondent reported that currently the monastery is home to almost 400 children and that there is a total of 500 refugees in the Lavra.

They are being fed, clothed, and provided with everything necessary, as much as possible. More people and children are coming from the cities, also needing assistance.

The Lavra is assisting more than 300 children. The Lavra has become home to 300 to 400 children, but their number is constantly changing.

There are situations in which mothers leave, taking their children with them, and situations in which people have nothing left: they have nowhere to return, and they travel further. Many do not want to leave, and so remain at the monastery. Sometimes people are taken to Kharkov and dropped off at bus stops. There are serious problems with transportation.

There is not enough baby food, fish, or meat. Despite the fast, refugees are fed fish and meat. There are many people, and the monastery’s monks distribute food products, since numerous people come to receive food rations. Medicine and clothes are also being distributed.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
