#InThisTogether: outcomes of the first charity concert to support self-isolated elderly people

The Roscongress Foundation organized its first online charity concert. The money raised by Uma2rman performance will be used to support self-isolated elderly people and persons with reduced mobility who are at risk during the spread of coronavirus. As of 19 April, the total amount of donation reached 96,000 roubles. Fund raising is underway. Over 100,000 people watched the concert online. The next online charity concert will be arranged for the Victory Day. 

‘In This Together’ hotline continues to support the elderly over 60 that are the risk group during the spread of COVID-19 and coordinate aid for them. The operation of the hotline is fully organized by the Roscongress Foundation. As of today, the call centre has received over 1.5 million calls and registered more than 170,000 requests. The Roscongress Foundation enabled the work of over 200 line operators, with the financial equivalent of ‘In This Together’ project support exceeding 10 million roubles during the month of hotline operation.

I am convinced that by joining efforts in this time of hardship we can help those for whom care and attention can now be life-saving,” noted CEO and Chairman of the Roscongress Foundation Alexander Stuglev.

All the raised funds will be used to provide targeted aid and deliver groceries and medications.
