30 January 2014. There’s Good Shit Out There… Charity Award in Honour of Nadezhda Monetova

00 Nadezhda Monetova. Russia. 30.01.14


A friend sent me this:

The MP Synodal Department of Church Charity and Social Service established an award named after Nadezhda Monetova, an employee who died tragically in 2012. She worked for the Orthodox movement to help the homeless. This award will go to volunteers and social activists helping the homeless. When she was 20, Nadezhda was homeless, then, an Orthodox social activist found her near a church and he invited her to his facility. She worked helping homeless people for 10 years. At the end, a drunk on a train stabbed her, leading to her death.

Yes, Virginia, there’s good shit out there. It needs no comment from me. For my friend, I say, Vous savez qui vous êtes… mon amitié et de gratitude tendre la main pour vous…

Without the aid of MANY, I’d be nothing…
