It is with shock and great sadness, that we have to tell you that our founder and director, Elena Sukhorukova died earlier this month, after a long illness. She was a woman of great vision and compassion, and she will leave a huge gap in the lives of her family, friends, colleagues and all the many orphanage-leavers she has supported through the years. Elena was very good at team-building: she has nurtured and empowered her colleagues well and we will continue her work.
You must forgive us if this report is rather short. We would like to share with you a couple of short videos from our last summer camp with Elena. You can see something of the fun we all had together, and the quality of attention the parents and children are giving each other. We will report more fully on what we got up to and how this impacted our families before too long.
