Rector of KSMU Viktor Lazarenko and Deputy Governor of the Kursk Region Andrey Belostotsky met the representatives of the volunteer movement “We Are Together”. They discussed the activity results and future plans at a round table in the regional cancer center.
For a year now, volunteers of the “We Are Together” movement, which also includes students of KSMU, have been helping retirees, people with disabilities, as well as doctors in the fight against the new coronavirus infection. Today there are about 2000 people among the volunteers. Since the beginning of the pandemic, volunteers have been delivering medicines and food to their homes, working in call centers, and forming kits for COVID-19 patients. During this period, volunteers have processed about 40 thousand applications.
Viktor Anatolyevich thanked students for helping citizens and medical workers during the pandemic:
“A pandemic is a challenge not only to the healthcare system, but also to the whole society, ” stressed the rector of KSMU. – It is very important and valuable that you accepted this challenge, responded to the requests of people in need of help, helped your future colleagues – doctors.
