Aeroexpress to host annual Train of Hope charity campaign

Aeroexpress will provide transportation for 35 prospective adoptive parents from across Russia to meet with children in residential institutions in Crimea and Sevastopol as part of its Train of Hope campaign.

At 10 a.m. local time on Oct. 7 hopeful parents boarded an Aeroexpress train in Belarus for a trip to Sheremetyevo Airport to participate in an educational session at the School of Adoptive Parents. Over the course of five days, prospective parents will receive free transportation to residential institutions to arrange adoptions for children in need of families.

On Oct. 18, Aeroexpress will operate a return service to Belarus for the new families.

Aeroexpress has been the transportation sponsor of Trains of Hope for five consecutive years. Established in 2004 in collaboration between Children's Question charity and GRK Radio Russia, Trains of Hope is supported by Aeroflot, Change A Life Charitable Foundation and the Moscow Department of Social Protection of Population.
