WFWP Russia: “From Heart to Heart” charity program
Several times in December 2014 WFWP of Moscow took part in charity programs for disabled children and for elderly people in the rehabilitation center “Kentavr” (together with WFWP volunteers from Japan), in the Center of social care “Meshansky”, in the Moscow Jewish Cultural center, in the Social House for elder people “Maryino”, in the House for War veterans. The purpose was to bring joy and support to those who are in need.
Second Generation children’s ensemble Angles of Peace gave a beautiful concert there. Children and elder people were very happy and grateful. We also held a charity program in the Cancer department of Morozovskaya Children’s Hospital. We congratulated cancer sick children with New Year and gave presents.
Global Women’s Peace Network conference. Caring hearts are able to heal
To inspire women from different NGOs to work together for the sake of peace and reconciliation and to learn from each other women representing many different NGOs took part in the Global Women’s Peace Network Conference on December 6. We shared experience in holding Bridges of peace and other peace and charity programs. It was also precious to be able to learn from other NGOs. After the conference, there was a beautiful concert. One of the Youth Peace Ambassadors said that this was the most practical and heartistic program she had ever attended before.
