From October 11-13, 2023, Expoforum Congress & Exhibition Center in St. Petersburg hosted the 16th international forum “The Senior Generation.” The annual forum is a venue which demonstrates to the senior generation and other people that an eventful and interesting life is possible at any age. The project seeks to involve older people in modern life, accumulate new ideas and find likeminded people. It gathers social workers, experts and family members who work to create a comfortable environment for the elderly. The ELCIR presented its social project—a network of Christian mercy houses. Bishop Laptev shared about the spiritual aspect of the work at those nursing homes and how it affects the quality of the residents’ life. Many thanks to project director Maksim Pavlyuchenkov, all mercy houses’ staff members and volunteers for the preparation and participation in this significant event!
