Help for single moms

The Volunteering Center Atikva is actively cooperating with the Crisis Center Nadezhda (rus. “hope”).

The crisis center supports single mothers, who face difficult life situations – who lose their work and home, who don’t receive support from relatives and friends. Our volunteers provide all-round assistance to kids and their moms. We bring them foodstuffs, toys, clothes and shoes, hygiene goods, make workshops, organize their leisure time and just do happier those, whose life is already difficult.

Our volunteers take care of moms. “Beauty will save the world” is not just a good metaphor for what we are doing, but the major thesis for the women, who experience our Day of Beauty. There are tears in their eyes, because despite of all difficulties and misfortunes they can receive warmth, care and love.
