Russia’s diplomatic mission and Moscow Patriarchate’s parish in Madrid raise aid for refugees from Ukraine

The Embassy of the Russian Federation in Spain and the church of St Mary Magdalene in Madrid, through joint efforts, have already collected 700 kilograms of clothes in aid to refugees who have found themselves in Russia as a result of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine.

In Moscow the cargo was handed over to the Synodal Department for Charity and Social Work.

“Our common aid to the roofless is a good example of cooperation between the Church and diplomats”, said Archpriest Andrey Kordochkin, rector of the church in Madrid.

Earlier the parish announced a fundraising campaign for aid to the Monastery of the Assumption in Svyatogorsk which gave asylum to over 700 refugees including the family of a priest who had been killed in the conflict, the website of the Diocese of Chersonese reports.

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 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.
