Merion Friends Meeting News Feed

Friends House Moscow

Friends House Moscow (Дом Друзей в Москве) has sent Merion Meeting a copy of their Winter 2013 newsletter. The articles describe their efforts at improving parenting skills to avoid children being removed from their families, as well as their efforts to assist in the transition of children in orphanages to attending regular public schools. They also describe their efforts to counsel conscientious objectors about their rights and about the details of applying for alternative service.

They also have an effort to translate Friends literature into Russian, often requiring skills in 17th century English in addition to fluency in Russian.  A list of publications currently available on line is here.
