Russia Projects


Evgeny (Eugene in English) Vachayev is the founder of the Big Family volunteer project that joined efforts with Desana in 2007. Before he retired in 2014, Evgeny worked full-time for a Metal and Steel Making Plant. Since then, however, his volunteering became a primary occupation. What started as a socializing class for orphans in one particular orphanage grew into a huge ministry touching hundreds of lives. Evgeny himself has two grown children, one adopted daughter with special needs and four grandchildren.
