«We are glad to
witness the expansion of both government support for doctors and support of
medical professionals through partnerships during this pandemic. We hope this
support will bring some happiness to doctors,» said Content Foundation Director
«Mars has always
been a socially responsible business and an active member of society, so we are
also pitching in during this difficult time. We are glad to have opportunity to
support doctors and medical personnel and are grateful to our partner, the
Roscongress Foundation, for helping make sure that our in-kind support reaches
its recipients as swiftly as possible,» said Mars in Russia President and Mars
Wrigley CEO Maher Batruni.
On 16 April, the
Roscongress Club, with the support of the Content Foundation, launched the
Doctors Personal Assistant project as part of the #InThisTogether campaign. A
medical organization can participate in this project by granting their
personnel access to a specialized platform allowing them to receive the help of
reliable assistants in addressing day-to-day issues.
«Doctors and medical professionals are continuing to work in these difficult conditions. Many of them havent seen their families for weeks. As such, we should all join forces and do everything we can to support those professionals in the meantime. We are glad to see that business are not staying on the sidelines either, offering the support that doctors need, perhaps, most of all. I am certain that if each of us takes the small step of supporting our heroes, we will make it through all of the difficulties we face today,» said Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Roscongress Foundation Alexander Stuglev.
