IWC Charities Office
Open every Monday,
1 p.m. - 2 p.m.
Dmitriya Ulyanova, Ul. #3
Room 210 (on 2nd floor
over the Bibliotecka)
A donations "hot-site" has been set up which attempts to link donors and recipients with each other, in an attempt to streamline the process and hopefully make it easier for companies and individuals to identify particular needs. If you are interested, check out www.online.ru/people/donation or send an email to email@example.com. The existing donations system run by the Charities Group remains unchanged, and the office is open for your donations of clothing, toys, kitchen equipment etc on Mondays between 1-2 pm. Right now we are particularly in need of warm coats and boots.
This month's Charities General Meeting was held at the Canadian Embassy on October 18th, due to the School holidays. There will be no meeting next week.
Decorating materials required...
for the Centre of Adaptation of Orphan Graduates. This centre is desperately in need of donations in the form of paint, paintbrushes, wallpaper and all renovation materials. The graduates of the orphanage are renovating the Centre themselves, and they have completely run out of funds. We already supply them with basic foodstuffs, but they need the materials to complete the renovation.
Crisis Line is a free and confidential service in English, available 24 hours a day. Telephone 244-3449 or 931-9682. Simply say "crisis" and leave your phone number with the pager service. A counselor will return your phone call.
Again, this year the Sign-up meeting at Spaso House was a great success with 574 people at our first meeting. We are still feeding out computers with information, so our first member count may not be completely correct. It looks like this: As of May we have 219 newcomers, 34 Ambassadors' wives, 310 renewals. A total of 553 members.
