A charity program implemented three years ago by a local church could be a model to be replicated in other cities, said Adventist leaders in the Russian city of Yoshkar-Ola. The “Good Hands” charity program launched its third season at the local Seventh-day Adventist church on November 25, 2018, the same day Russia celebrated Mother’s Day.
“The first meeting this year was very positive,” said one of the organizers in that city of 250,000, located almost 500 miles (800 kilometers) east of Moscow. “We were glad to see old visitors who warmly greeted the volunteers of our team, as well as those who came to the program for the first time.”
The charity made the most of the special occasion and treated mothers to a special celebratory program, organizers reported. Church volunteers shared poems and songs about mothers, and each woman present received a small gift.
