…Support religious programming cassette distribution in Central Asia
Kana Studio in Novosibirsk, Russia is producing religious programs for local broadcast. Since the costs of setting up video studios in each of the Central Asian countries would be prohibitive, the idea of setting up a system of TV cassette distribution was born. These programs are used by priests and religious in their pastoral work. This work also creates a feeling of unity among Catholics separated by tremendous distances in this remote part of the world. The service is offered free of charge to all parishes. Amount requested: $7,000.
