SSSIO volunteers in Russia, in a spirit of dedication to the environment, participated in nature retreats organized nationwide during May 13-14, 2023.

Volunteers collected trash and cleared a stretch along the banks of the River Sura, restoring it to its pristine beauty. In Neftekamsk, two volunteers cultivated a garden by planting potatoes, mowing the grass, and removing weeds.

Volunteers were filled with a deep sense of joy and love being immersed in Nature and felt immense gratitude to God for all His beautiful creations.
