Project of the Week: Renovations in Russia

Both Catholic and Orthodox churches in Russia through dialogue have discovered one common preoccupation. The desire to help suffering addicts. One man, Fr. Sergij Belkov, has developed a tried and true method in Sapjornoe that many others are adopting. His success rate with addicts is so great that extensions are now needed on the Orthodox rehabilitation centre to house all those in need, programs and much more. ACN has been supporting this excellent initiative right from the start. Read more about it in our Project of the Week.
