Svetlana/St Petersburg, 22nd October 2017. Today the exciting report of Felix reached us, who spent his work placement in class 11 in an institution for the handicapped in Russia. In various ways he was able to realize his aim of becoming more competent in the Russian language and collecting experiences in social work in the Camphill-village of Svetlana, which is a two hours’ drive away from St Petersburg: Together with handicapped people he worked in a cheese dairy, for instance, and learned how to produce milk, cheese, curd and cream. There was a lot for him to do in the garden, with farm activities, with packaging and marketing of the products as well as in the kitchen. In his free time he could explore the environment with Russian colleagues and other volunteers und drive a boat on Lake Ladoga, the largest lake in Europe. On some evenings he participated in cosy Bible prayers together with the villagers and got into a conversation with them on all the world and his brother.
