This summer, Russia is hosting children from the embattled Syria. The stay of a hundred of kids from the country has been organized and supported by St. Andrew the Apostle Foundation with assistance from Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Syrian Embassy in Moscow. According to the Foundation media service, the children will be in Moscow on July 28 – August 11, with the accommodation arranged for at a suburban summer camp. Chairperson of the Foundation board Vladimir Yakunin says that hosting children from conflict zones is among traditional missions of the charity which received 540 children from Kosovo and Metohija a decade ago. He expressed hope that the kids will, for a time, forget about the nightmarish events they had to witness and will remember their Russian experiences for the rest of their lives.
