Charity Work in Georgia

Take about 10 minutes and listen to AFR’s program on the conflict between Russia and Georgia. They talk with IOCC’s longstanding work in this section of the former Soviet Union, which has recently been kicked into high-gear. IOCC is an interesting and effective charity organization because of the organization of the local churches and their organic link between parishes and the need on the ground. For this reason it is no reason that both the Russian hierarchs and Georgian hierarchs are involved in the relief work. IOCC is able to use local resources to help those in need because of their connection with local parishes and the cooperation of the different autocephalous churches. Such a different way of helping out the less fortunate than we are used to: dropping packaged goods from places and distributing condoms to the thirsty and malnourished.
