"Give a Postcard to a Veteran" - an international social project for Victory Day

From October 10, 2019 to March 15, 2020, the international contest "Give a Postcard to a Veteran" is taking place. Organizers of the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots (CCROC) in Qatar have been holding events dedicated to Victory Day for several years in a row.

The "Give a Card to a Veteran" contest is open to children 18 years of age and younger. To participate in the contest, those who wish to do a postcard, applique or illustration, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, and write a personal wish to a veteran of the Great Patriotic War. All postcards will be sent to their recipients.

The goal of the project is to glorify and memorialize the heroism of soldiers during the Great Patriotic War, to develop patriotism in the children's generation.

The jury will evaluate the work on several points.
The handicraft must match the theme of the contest. The judges will also pay attention to the originality of the plot, composition, thoroughness and cleanliness of the work.

The winners' works will be printed and distributed to the countries participating in the contest. On the Great Victory Day the handicrafts with touching congratulations will please our veterans.

The author of the project, our compatriot Ekaterina Kremenskaya, deputy chairman of the QSRC, tells how the idea of organizing such a large-scale social project came about:

"It's important for me to preserve this history and pass it on to the younger generation. My grandfather did a heroic deed, as did many others who went through the war, and I don't want him and all the others to be forgotten. That's how the idea of the project "Give a card to a veteran" was born. My grandfather did not live to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Victory, but there are still veterans. I want them to know that we, our generation, young people and our children remember their deeds, remember the veterans, and try to preserve and pass on history.

To date, more than 100 postcards have already been received from different parts of the world: Jordan, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Ireland, Qatar, Russia, Oman, Spain, Tanzania, Palestine, Turkmenistan.

The results of the competition will be announced in early April.
