The Union of Charity Sisterhoods of Belarusian Orthodox Church

Mercy and charity are not a favor, not a function and not a series of social projects. Mercy and charity are a movement of two hearts towards each other, which occurs only on condition of mutual brotherly Christian love and mutual sacrifice for each other.

Metropolitan of Minsk and Slutsk
Patriarchal Exarch of All Belarus

The Union of Charity Sisterhoods of Belarusian Orthodox Church has been actively functioning for more than 13 years, uniting the diocesan and parish sisterhoods and parish social services.
More than 2,000 people are working on a voluntary basis in the field of charity in all the dioceses of Belarus. The Sisters of Mercy are carrying Christian care to those places where the problem of helping your neighbors is so crucial: to hospitals and nursing homes, to orphanages and shelters for children, to sick  and lonely people .
According to His Eminence Filaret, Metropolitan of Minsk and Slutsk, Patriarchal Exarch of All Belarus, "voluntary charity movement has become  for laypeople the form of awareness of their place and their value in the mystical body of the Church. All in all by now there are more than 100 sisterhoods. To maintain and develop their activities, the Union of Sisterhoods was created in the Belarusian Exarchate, thanks to which largely spontaneous movement took shape and status of systematically organized and scientifically coordinated process ".
