Russian Embassy, London, December 2004

An exceptional charity organisation working to aide abandoned and orphaned children in Russia set to launch a fundraising project in the UK.

On December 14th, 2004 at the Russian Embassy, Red Square Projects is organising an Evening press conference to launch this charity to the generous British public. The evening is to raise awareness of the Foundation, helping this cause will be many distinguished guests and speakers, including dignitaries from Russia to give their support to their chosen charity.

The President of the foundation, Irina Tintyakova, along with her husband Alexei Koudrin, Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation will be in attendance, along with many influential and philanthropic Russian businessmen, artists, diplomats and politicians. Among them current patrons and sponsors; Valeriy Gergiev, Andrei Konchalovsky and Yuriy Bashmet, who very are aware of the extreme importance and urgency in overhauling the Russian system in order to provide "their" children, their homeland, the same opportunities as Western children.

"We want to make difference for every Russian child, - says Irina Tintyakova, the President of the North Crown Foundation, - Being Russian means a lot to us and we want to provide a decent future to every Russian citizen. We concentrate on the very small ones - those who need help, who can't stand up for themselves, who can't be heard. Those who desperately need our love, affection, friendship and support. "

This unique foundation not only works to provide medical care, child guidance and education to disadvantaged Russian children, they are also working to promote change within the social service system in Russia. There is no band-aid solution; this foundation is set to create a new structure in Russia that will provide children with a future that is currently not available to them.

The Launch consisted of Keynote speeches, Q&A time, Picture exhibition and of course vodka shots and canapes kindly provided by the premium Russian Vodka FLAGSHIP.

NCF committee would like to thank HE Grigory Karasin, Ambassador of the Russian Federation in the UK for his kind support of the North Crown Foundation.
