"Our Seniors of Self-Reliance Russian-speaking group led by volunteer, Marina Konkin, has been operated since April this year. We appreciate the high level of preparation put into conducting the classes, considering the needs of all participants.

We received a lot of helpful information and did many interesting things.

For example, we learned about Aboriginal peoples' way of life and culture, Canada's political system and holidays. We also read interesting and entertaining stories, played memory and word games and went to the ROM and Centre Island. We always had the opportunity to express our points of view, share our experiences and tell stories.

We thank our leader, Marina, for her care, attention, compassion and understanding towards the older generation, for her creative and organized lessons. Our group thanks NYCH for providing us with such a wonderful professional.

Deepest regards,
S.O.S Russian-speaking group members"
