Moscow, Russia, May 24, 2016 - Participants at this week's FIVB World Tour stop took time here Tuesday to visit orphans at the Children Home-Boarding House in the Russian capital city.
"It was a delightful afternoon of meeting and visiting with the children at the Children Home-Boarding facility," said 2008 Estonian Olympian Rivo Vesik. "To have a chance to visit with the children along with presenting them with sport equipment and souvenirs from the beach volleyball event brought a lot of smiles to those young faces."
