ROCOR Collects Over $50,000 to Help Haitians

January 22, 2010

New York, January 21, Interfax — The Fund for Assistance to the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia has collected over $50,000 to help people suffered from the earthquake in Haiti.

As the Foundation’s website has reported, $16,000 of aid was already disbursed to the suffering people through trusted clergymen on the ground there.

Besides, the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia works towards opening a clinic on the grounds of one of its five parishes in Haiti.

“Please support our fundraising effort. I want to emphasize that every single penny donated to this project is spent on this project. None of the money earmarked for Haiti is being used for administrative costs or overhead. When the dust settles and we catch our breath, a full accounting of how our donors money was spent will be published on the FFA’s website,” the Fund executive director Archpriest Viktor Potapov said in his statement.
