The “Old World” Christian Charity is a nonprofit organization, and so far it has no financial resources of its own, therefore all of the “Old World” activities have been provided mostly by volunteers and charitable donations.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated staff of true professionals, almost all volunteers,  whose only concern is the treatment of individuals who want to be free of the prison of addiction. We are poised to be a leading support system in combating the rampant alcohol and drug addiction permeating the youth of Russia.


Now our therapeutic community is on the verge of closure due to lack of money to buy food for residents, to pay for electricity and heating and to give at least small support to the staff. All we need to continue our work is about $ 800 a month. However, within two-three years our TC  can become for the most part self-supporting.


In spite of a lack of funding, we continue all of our activities at their present level.  Nevertheless, we need funds to continue our work and to achieve our goals.


We are going to publish the benefactors’ and donors’ names in our annual reports, as well as at a special part of our website. 

We will be glad to place at all interested persons disposal any information on our work and needs, as well as the reports on how their donations were used

You may contact us by email oldworld@orc.ru or phone +7 916 394 1305

Any funds which can be provided for the “Old World” Christian Charity will be used with integrity to ensure effective help for alcoholics, drug addicts, and their families

We are happy to be supported by such a prominant worldwide-known European specialist in addiction treatment field as Dr. Martien Kooyman from Nietherlands, who wrotes:


Rotterdam, The Netherlands

April 15, 2012


In the last years I had the opportunity to visit in Moscow the Old World Center for the treatment of persons addicted to drugs.

This organization is one of the few examples in Russia offering of the full range of rehabilitation possibilities:  physically, psychologically, morally and socially. 

The members of the therapeutic community learn to solve their problems without the use of drugs or alcohol. They are taught to live responsibly respecting themselves and others. 

I felt the same positive atmosphere in the house as I had experienced in the many other therapeutic communities  which I visited in many different countries in all five continents. 

I spoke with members if the therapeutic community and also with ex-residents who had found their way back in the society who had stopped their addictive behavior successfully. I met the staff and volunteers working in the program under the guidance of Dr. Eugene Protsenko, whom I have met at several international conferences.

I understand that the program is in need of financial resources to be able to continue its work.  It is important to realize that the benefits for society in saving costs for medical care, police the justice system and other cost of those who leave this program successful are far greater than the costs of the treatment.

Besides that there are the benefits in well being for the families of the addicted persons  which can not be estimated in money.
