Pravmir.com team | 04 February 2020

A free rehabilitation and educational camp “DobroMore” [translated from Russian as Kind Sea] for families with seriously ill children or children who have survived a serious illness, such as an oncological one, began its work in Montenegro with the support of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The project was put together by an organization called “Russian Orthodox Diaconia in Europe “Good Deed”. It was developed for Russian-speaking families from the CIS countries and Europe, the press service of the Synodal Charity Department reports.

The program is designed for 10 days, during which the participants are actively involved in interactive activities and creative workshops. There also are classes in paddleboard, horseback riding, and there are guided tours and trips.

“The main mission of the ‘DobroMore’ project is to create a space where everyone can recharge, restore resources for further battle with the disease or its consequences,” said Alina Titova, head of the “Good Deed” Orthodox volunteer organization and the project initiator.

Since you are here…

…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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
