Inkeri-seura (Association of Ingrian Finns) was founded by the community of Ingrian Finns, who lived in Finland before World War II. The society had existed up to the beginning of the 1990s, but due to a decrease of the number of its members it was officially closed. In 2008 the society was re-established by Ingrian Finns who had migrated to Finland in the 1990s. The society (it's new name Association of Ingrian Finns of Helsinki region) is the member of SuomenInkeri-Liitto (Ingrian Finns Organisation of Finland). InkerinViesti is a printing press magazine of the society.


One of the senior group left the partner meeting in Brussels and the second Kisakeskus. In Kisakeskus seniors spent five days. The days were filled with the program. Fortunately, the weather in Finland were comfortable and warm, so it was wonderful to have a beautiful outdoor scenery. Kisakeskus is located near the Tammisaari-town. It is on the banks of a beautiful lake. Senior citizens, who have come from Karelia, said that they felt that the native landscape.

Promoters was five. After five days, the participants kuntoilivat, listened to lectures, sang, and walked to the lake scenery. Alexander Kekkonen told us about the event and others were interested in this opportunity to get this type to rehabilitation.
