The action is called ‘Cleaning Academy’.
In the framework of the action titled ‘Cleaning Academy’, St. Petersburg volunteers help World War 2 veterans about the house cleaning, washing, and dusting. They can also listen to stories about the war, the Siege of Leningrad, and life.
Valentina Alatskaya spent all the horrible years of the Siege in Leningrad. Now she is 93, and she is grateful to the young people and glad to welcome her guests.
‘Nowadays people are more interested in the war and the Siege, they ask questions,’ Valentina Alatskaya says.
The action was organized by the Victory Volunteers organization and the St. Petersburg Committee for youth policy. Yulia Ablets, Chairperson of the Committee, came to the veteran and helped her about the house herself.
‘I want to draw the attention of young people to those who live next door to them and need their help. It is no so difficult to find a couple of hours on weekend and come to help your neighbor,’ Yulia Ablets explains.
The action is underway, the Committee for youth policy invites everybody who wants to take part in it to come and get information whom and how they can help.
