Within the project "Relatives" organized by Warmed Heart and Moscow based charity "Starost v Radost " (https://starikam.org/) we intend to help elder people from Russia living on the edge of poverty.
Our goal is to be able to provide to them regular financial help of at least £50 per month. Even this amount can significantly improve their quality of life and often counts half of their pension. Also, knowing that they can rely on the regular help gives a strong psychological support.
These elder people might not have grandchildren who would take care of them, but you can become one for them.
