We usually say thank you. Our partners, donors, volunteers, without whom our foundation simply would not exist.
But this time, the state thanked us - the 20 largest charitable and volunteer organizations of Ukraine, including "Zaporuka". For our "titanic work, for the fact that we are ready to lend a shoulder where help and support is needed", the Ministry of Health of Ukraine awarded us with the distinction "For significant achievements in professional activity and conscientious work".
And you know... it's nice? Because it's nice for everyone when the work that you consider your life's work is seen and appreciated. Especially when it is done at the state level not formally, but realizing what is behind it.
"Collecting the needs, organizing everything logistically correctly and bringing the medicine to the institution that needs it - each of us understands the work and responsibility behind it. But how touching it is to hear words of thanks from medical workers, messages from institutions in the occupied territories that see they have not been forgotten. Thanks to you," said Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko.
We hope that we are beginning to live in times when officials at all levels will become our sincere partners. After all, by and large, we are working towards one goal - a healthy and happy nation of long-lived people??
