Russian Church Helps Residents of Bacoor, Philippines team | 10 February 2021

The Department of Charity and Social Ministry of the Philippines-Vietnamese diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church began to provide humanitarian assistance to poor families in the city of Bacoor, located ten kilometers from the capital of the Philippines, Manila.

The department staff also train local volunteers in the basics of children’s nutrition and hygiene.


As the diocesan website reports, since Bacoor residents know about the Russian Church and there are many who want to join it, in the future it is possible a new parish of the Moscow Patriarchate will open there.

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.
