Russia: Falun Gong practitioners Participate in the Moscow City Health Fair

A group of social organizations held a large-scale exhibition in Moscow city hall on January the 22nd and 23rd. The goal of this exhibition was improve people’s health, promote healthy lifestyles and develop physical education. The activities were organised by an association named “Healthy City and Citizens of Moscow”, sponsored jointly by the Duma (Russian Parliament), the city government of Moscow, Labour Union of Moscow and some social organisations and clubs. Moscow Falun Gong practitioners were invited to participate in the activities by introducing Falun Dafa to the general public. Some famous physicians, medical workers and scholars also attended the seminar.

In the lobby of the city hall, various forms of health care and recovery were exhibited. Falun Gong practitioners displayed information boards about Falun Dafa, and enthusiastically shared their personal experiences and the benefits they have received from practising with the visitors. They also answered questions and distributed Dafa leaflets, CDs and self-made calendars.

One practitioner was invited to give a speech. She introduced to the public several examples of the physical and mental health benefits practitioners have enjoyed from learning Falun Dafa. She also mentioned the efforts that the Moscow Falun Dafa Association has made to improve the physical and mental health of people in the city. As soon as her speech was completed, she was surrounded by delegates from many organisations who wanted to get more detailed information about Falun Dafa.

The first day of the health fair happened to be Chinese New Year’s Day. Dafa practitioners demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises and performed traditional Chinese dancing, including the “Fan Dance”. These dances added to the happy and lively atmosphere. The event organiser was so pleased that he invited practitioners to present another performance on the second day.

During the two-day exhibition, practitioners distributed a large amount of newspapers, flyers, CDs, Video-CDs, etc. to let people know more about Falun Dafa. Almost all of the people attending were very interested. Many of them immediately asked about their local practice site where they can learn the exercises for free. Several organisations invited practitioners to introduce Falun Dafa to their employees, or to attend other activities.

Finally, the fair organisers publicly expressed their gratitude to Falun Gong practitioners and their hope that another opportunity for them to work together will come soon.
