A group of volunteers headed to a village in the Tula Region to visit an elderly lady who they heard needed wood to burn in her stove or in other words were in trouble. Entering her home, they found her sitting next to the stove with tears in her eyes. It was very cold and it smelled like dampness.
How is that possible that in the 21st century, in the country busy constructing sports facilities for the Olympic Games, in the era of the Internet and space satellites, an 82-year old lady is freezing in her home? Who knows how she felt after the volunteers left. What if she fell and cannot stand up… She ceased waiting for help and attention from people passing her home by a long time ago. Location: The Tula Region

How IS it possible that society’s priorities allow such things to still happen there, here, everywhere?
