According to the Mosvolunteer Resource Centre, over a million of the capital's residents have taken part in some kind of charity event at least once. For example, in planting seedlings of Rubus arcticus – the red-listed plant in Zaryadye Park on the 'Alley of Kindness'. And some pensioners become tour guides and run entertaining walks in the city.
For those who care about doing good, the Mosvolunteer association offers over ten volunteering opportunities. You can find out more about them in our story.
