With support from the Foundation bells for the Monastery’s bell-tower were made. Every year a youth labour expedition helping the restoration of the Holy Trinity Monastery visits the Anzer Island. Participants of the expedition are young people who want to get to know the spiritual heritage of Fatherland and to help the restoration of the unique Christian monument. With the Foundation’s help a corduroy road was built on the swamp territory of the Anzer Island that made it possible to get to sacred places and to deliver cargo which is necessary for restoration of churches and monasteries.
