Dear friends!

We are going to Corfu this May and we found this information at Russian Internet: http://www.sestry.ru/eng/content/bip/06/091

It`s about one old orthodox monastery at Corfu island and mother superior of this monastery. This woman is restoring it HERSELF! She`s
very courageous and self-denying!

I sent an email to mother Fotinia, where I asked she about a current state of affairs and I got an answer that mother does not have any
money for to continue the restoration. She has just a bit food for to keep body and soul together and she really needs any help!

She said also that at present the monastery needs just about 500 euro for continue a current restoration work. The second problem is a GRASS, which grows very fast and mother Fotinia needs somebody, who can cut it!(she can`t do it, because she traumatized her spinal column some time ago) Let`s visit mother Fotinia and help her! Unfortunately, I do not know an exact place, where the monastery is it, but I`ll ask m. Fotinia and put this information here.

Also, I would like to say, that if each of us will send just some small sum, it will be very big help to the monastery. All information about her bank data you will find in the article: http://www.sestry.ru/eng/content/bip/06/091

For any questions you can write directly to mother Fotinia: gerondissafotini@yahoo.com

If you can help to m. Fotinia or you have any ideas, how to help her, please write to this topic or to the monastery directly.

Thanks a lot!
