St. Petersburg (Russia) -- Social work during vacations

Bulevardi Foorumi, the Opus Dei Prelature’s center in Helsinki, organized an international work camp for high school and university students in St. Petersburg. Students coming from Ireland, Sweden and Finland took part.

The work involved cleaning and painting a shelter for invalids in St. Petersburg and the apartments of other disabled people in various parts of the city. The participants also visited a reformatory at Tikhvin, some 150 miles east of St.Petersburg. The visit included playing sports with the young inmates and a cultural activity.

Other activities organized for the students were visits to factories, conferences by university professors and talks by businessmen describing their country’s situation.
