Helping the orphan children

Pskov • December 17th, 2011

On December 17th, 2011, in the city of Pskov, the Foundation held its annual action of help to the orphan children, whose parents perished in the performance of soldier’s duty. Many military units of the Pskov Oblast took part in combat activities in the hotspots, where they suffered considerable losses. Caring for children of the soldiers who have fallen for the Motherland in the times of peace is a most important task of the Orthodox charity.

Initially, the Foundation helped the children of the heroic 6th Company of Pskov paratroopers perished in the North Caucasus. In the course of time, other orphan children who lost their parents, servicepersons of various regiments, have been taken care of, too.

 On behalf the Russian Orthodox Church, the meeting was welcomed by Archpriest Oleg Teor, one of the first ecclesiastic ministers to the militaries in the contemporary Russia.

 Word of welcome by f. Oleg Teor.

"Thank God, there are people for whom the charitable help, the donation for the sake of delivering the children suffering from the society’s indifference is their life’s integral part. For these children want to be loved, to be talked to and be cared for. A most simple thing is to close one’s eyes, and make no notice, or claim it is the state that is to take care of them. But what is the state? It is its citizens, that is we, all of us. And if we are indifferent to our neighbor’s misfortune, if the mercy is not any business of ours; if we pay no heed to somebody’s else pain, if we are waiting for all this to be done by the others, then we will never understand, that any ”others” unavailable here, that it is we who are the others. The society, where people calmly go past somebody’s else misfortune or pain, has no future", said f. Oleg.

Upon completion of the official part, the Blue Berets Airborne Force ensemble made their performance.
