A Good Cause: Pastors Brings Aid to Hungry, Refugees

 Ett utdrag ur artikeln:
American expatriate Matthew Laferty, 26, is the pastor of the Moscow Protestant Chaplaincy at St. Andrew's Church on Voznesensky Pereulok. He is also the executive director of the charity MPC Social Services, the charitable wing of the chaplaincy, which runs a diverse range of projects in Moscow.
Q: How did the chaplaincy become involved in charitable causes?
A: In 1991 at the end of the Soviet Union, the Moscow Protestant Chaplaincy decided to begin doing charitable work in Moscow. We started with a soup kitchen for pensioners in the Vorobyovy Gory district of the city. Today, our programs focus on three key areas: issues of hunger, poverty and displacement. As such, we work mainly with pensioners, children and displaced peoples like refugees and migrants.
Q: What programs do you operate today?
A: We still operate two soup kitchens in Moscow and a food bank specifically targeting United Nations-registered refugees. We run a racial task force that monitors race-motivated violence and does advocacy related to racism. There are also education programs specifically aimed at immigrants and people who have very little or no Russian-language skills or don't know how to use a computer.
