In the village of Kravoder, Bulgaria, only the icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker remained intact in a fire in one of the houses.

The fire in the house of a local teacher, Natalya Todorova, occurred on March 25. Due to the strong wind and several more fires in the area which it caused, firefighters arrived in Kravoder more than an hour late, reports

The house caught fire when its owner was returning from a hospital in the nearby city of Montana.

It is noted that everything in the house was destroyed by fire, except for one small icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.

The mayor of the local community has asked the municipal council to provide financial assistance to the woman. Her friends and relatives have already started raising funds for the construction of a new house.

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 -,, and 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.
