Refugee Children Hosted at Christmas Party
Text and photos John Logan

OPORA, an NGO working with refugee children, Russian street children and orphans, held a Christmas celebration in Moscow in January where Dr. Gezahgn Wordofa, the general director of OPORA handed out chocolate from Dirol Cadbury and toys and clothing donated by the social club of the Canadian Embassy, and the Diplomatic Services Family Association of the British Embassy.

OPORA was founded by refugees in 2003 for the support of refugees in Moscow and the surrounding area. The majority of the refugees come from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Congo, Burundi and Somalia, but some were from as far away as Latin America. Over the years, the mandate of OPORA has expanded to include the needs of Russian homeless, orphan and street children in response to their growing numbers in Moscow and the surrounding area.
