The message reads, in part:
“Your forum’s goals have brought together caring, empathic and emotionally generous people of all ages and professions from all over Russia. Such broad representation and the public and expert attention to your forum are evidence of the high prestige of the Russian Children’s Fund and the significance and relevance of its multifaceted and extremely important activities. I want to note that the Fund’s staff are working hard in their much-needed undertaking aimed at strengthening the family and family values, protecting children’s rights and supporting children in difficult circumstances. You are implementing awareness-raising, educational and charity programmes to bring up the younger generation on the basis of high spiritual and moral ideals and to help thousands of boys and girls develop their talent and skills, choose their future professions and become good members of society.
I am confident that your congress will be held in a creative and constructive spirit, leading to new essential initiatives in the interests of children and their well-being.”
