“Of all the volunteer deliveries to elderly people, I remember the saddest moment — we were saying goodbye to one elderly woman, wishing her health and not getting sick, to which she replied with a smile: «I’m not sick, I’m leaving slowly.»
Why did I start volunteering for «Starenki»? Here is a little this and a little that: there’s a projection of the living conditions of the elderly on my grandmother, the need to be involved in something socially important, and the desire to help and not to be indifferent, after all.
I believe that volunteering balances the bad bullshit in the world, and it balances me”.
