The report talks about the “Mission-Physician” Project launched at the Feodorovsky Monastery in Pereslavl-Zalesskiy. The reason for developing this project was a transfer of the former provincial hospital to the Pereslavl diocese, where the future Saint, surgeon V.F. Voyno-Yasenetskiy, worked from 1910 to 1917. In 2020, the creation of a multifunctional charity and educational center in the name of Saint Luke (Voyno-Yasenetskiy) began. There is a plan to create an interactive space, divided into zones intended for work with different target audiences. Most of them are young people: schoolchildren looking for career guidance, students of medical colleges, disabled children and members of their families, orphanage care children. The project is aimed to facilitate the social support for people with low mobility and serious illnesses, as well as to help the employees and volunteers of the social organizations to develop volunteering among young people.
