To Russia With Love – Volunteers Wanted For A Life-Changing Trip!

An unforgettable experience for a great Irish charity


Add a touch of magic to the lives of orphaned children and experience the incredible culture and beauty of Russia? Sounds like a pretty great combination to us! 

If any of this appeals to you, then we might just have found the experience for you. Irish charity  ‘To Russia With Love’ has just announced details of a very special trip this March and they want you to come along with them.

‘To Russia with Love’ is a fantastic charity doing life-changing work with thousands of orphaned and abandoned children across the Russia. From establishing education programmes to reconstructing buildings, the charity has helped put the smile back on thousands of children’s faces.

The trip

Kicking off on March 13, volunteers will depart from Dublin and spend the first night in a Moscow hotel.

Day two will see volunteers attending a special St Patrick’s Day parade along with children from one of the orphanages associated with the charity. This will be a huge thrill for the children as Ireland holds a special place in their hearts. On the evening of the parade, volunteers will be heading to a swanky St Patrick’s Day Ball – don’t forget to pack your ballgown!

On day three a train journey to the Western region of Bryansk to the Hortolova orphanage will see the group spending time with the children and experience first-hand the important work the charity is doing. ‘To Russia With Love’ has been working in the desolate region of Bryansk for 17 years, and while a lot has already been achieved to improve the lives of orphaned children in the area, there is so much more to do.

Departing Bryansk on a midnight train journey back to Moscow on day four, the group will arrive back at sunrise into historic Red Square, home to so much Russian history.

Volunteers will depart for Dublin arriving back just in time to partake in St Patrick’s Day festivities in Ireland on March 17.

Getting there

This unique charity trip costs €2,500.00 per person and includes return flights, visas, accommodation, food and a donation to support the work of ‘To Russia With Love.’ It is suggested that volunteers pay half for the trip themselves and fundraise the remaining amount.

Spaces are limited and early booking is advised due to popularity.
