A few years ago I started to collect documents for the “Claimes Conference” and asked Menorah for help, since I had to translate documents into English, which I do not speak. I am very grateful to the volunteer who spent time with me and helped me a lot.

Since I am an active person and I always respond to any suggestions to do good to people, I gladly agreed to Elena Rodionova’s proposal to become a volunteer. Now I communicate with people and tell the information about the programs to other wards of social programs. I am working, of course, to the best of my ability, because my health is not good.

Today it is necessary to be a volunteer, because so many people need help both for health reasons and because they do not have relatives who could help them. I feel that I’m doing something important.

Reception document service assistant.

Hobbies: I write poems, prose and I enjoy being photographed.

My volunteer career began when I was at school in 11th grade. My friend and I signed up for an action against extremism and drug trafficking. We walked around ​​the district and made photos of “advertisements” of drugs, smoking mixtures, and various inscriptions such as swastikas, which offend different nationalities. We sent all the information to a police officer.

Later, I was a volunteer in the search and rescue team “Liza Alert” and searched for missing people. I placed announcements about the search, notified the public about the results, and I was also the organizer of the “Memorial Day of the Perished Children” supported by “Lisa Alert”.

I wanted to be a volunteer from a Jewish organization, and I learned about the existence of Hesed Ester and the fact that everyone could participate in cleaning the Jewish cemetery. This is very important for me as a Jew, as a member of the community, and it gives me great pleasure to do this activity. There is such a nice and useful action as cleaning the cemetery – thank you so much for it!

Hello everyone! My name is Liza, and I am the coordinator of the animal assistance project (assistance to the Krasnodog animal shelter). All the inhabitants of our planet, including myself, see homeless animals every day, and I want to do at least something to help them. I found out 2 years ago that in our city there is a shelter for animals “Krasnodog”. Our volunteers and me went to help the shelter, and I was very impressed. I saw many injured animals, and they suffered from people’s behavior. When I had seen this, I wanted to show people what happens to those whom we do not care about. That’s how the project, which I coordinate, has appeared in our volunteer center.

Oleg Mikhailovich Belokon, 41 years old, Civil Engineer. I like assembling models of ships and airplanes. I also prefer making paper models of animals, dolls and princesses; I like origami, and, in general, creating something with my own hands from paper, beads, plasticine. Children usually need help in organizing an event or making a prop to it. Son and daughters often ask me to invent a box, costume, fencing or furniture for them. It is interesting to me to create different things and to know that they are useful and make people smile. And I always help to do something with my own hands for the holidays or a camp. I just fix something so that it works and the children can play. For the holidays we bring delicious treats for grandparents. In the “Zikaron” project I helped in cleaning the Jewish cemetery of Saratov.

My name is Denis. I am 19 years old. I am the coordinator of the Birthday project.

Everyone who is a volunteer, probably, asks himself what is volunteering for him/her? Volunteering for me is one of the opportunities to help people selflessly. Such situations show our humanity and sense of community. I understand that helping others, I also help myself.

Volunteering is a two-way process of sharing good deeds.
