Metropolitan Sergei of Voronezh and Liski has already handed over certificates of receipt of funds raised during its campaign to parents of children with terminal cancer, reports the Voronezh Metropolia’s press service. Fifty-one families received 130,000 rubles each for medical treatment for their children. A part of the funds raised have been handed over to the regional children’s clinical hospital for purchasing necessary medical equipment. In total, over 14.5 million rubles were collected by the campaign.
This campaign was arranged in the Voronezh region already for the sixth time, which usually features charity auctions and fairs. Volunteers – university and school students – made white flowers and presented them to everyone who made donations. The campaign was conducted on the streets, on the territory of enterprises, in shopping centers and in educational establishments.
A series of charitable and spiritual and educational events were arranged as part of the project: “A Festival of Kindness” for children from orphanages and rehabilitation centers, “The Week of Kindness” in schools and institutions of higher education, and “The Bike Ride of Kindness”.
