This photo project was dedicated to the only charity organization of the small town of Pskov in Russia.
Sisters of Mercy are currently the only source of support for people who fall through the cracks of existing state aid structures.
Russia lacks a comprehensive social safety net. Those most in need often fall through the cracks of the minimal existing aid structures. Most Russian private charitable organizations lack financial resources and are not subsidized by the state. Those with most critical needs are often left to fend for themselves. Without any compensation, Sisters of Mercy provide help to those most in need, regardless of religion and social status.
