Charity Sacral Workshop „Eleos”

Greek έλεος (Eleos) - is a pity, mercy, and compassion itself. We adopted this name, because at the root of our open air are just deeds of mercy.

24 May 2016, on the premises of the Institute of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases named L.V. Hromashevs'koho, a center of spiritual assistance and psychological support for the chronically ill people have been opened.

This is the first such place in Kiev, here you can get spiritual support being the person ill on HIV/AIDS, chronic inflammation of the liver or other chronic diseases.

At the "House of Martha and Mary", which will be adapted to prayer and liturgy, for many confessions they placed the icon, which was painted during the III International Open Air Iconographic in Kiev. Theme of the open air was migration. How close this topic is for the sick. The author of the icon is Ms. Anetta Pędzisz from Poland.

Topinc put into the icon was the biblical theme of "Return of the Prodigal Son." Christ hugs the returning wanderer. This symbol is very eloquent when it turns out that disease got into our life. In the arms of Christ, we are always welcomed, accepted and safe, regardless of who we are in life, and what evil things we did. We hope that the presence of icons made during the open air will be fruitful in many courageous return to Christ.

Home builders and founders thank you for such a place of honor for the work occurring during our outdoor meetings.
