The message reads, in part:
“This forum has brought together a huge team here in Moscow, a team united by common goals and objectives including school and university students, healthcare workers, and representatives of other professions. You will discuss the current challenges facing your organisation, share experience and best practices, and outline priority areas for future activities. And of course, you have a great opportunity to take part in a competition of socially significant projects. I would like to note that all of your promising initiatives will receive support.
It is gratifying that the high and noble mission of the medical volunteer movement is attracting new supporters and strengthening its creative and humanitarian potential. Your dedication, involvement and compassion, your attention to those who need care and help, your contribution to raising medical awareness and popularisation of the healthy and active lifestyle values deserve the most sincere recognition.”
