An assistant to rely on: working together to support healthcare professionals

RC Club and the Content Foundation for Expertise and Analysis are working together as part of the #InThisTogether national initiative to support medical professionals. Doctors in Russia are currently working selflessly and tirelessly in the fight against coronavirus. As a result, frontline healthcare workers are in need of extra support.

«The whole world is united — personal interests or politics are irrelevant when it comes to saving lives. Nations are sending humanitarian aid and medical personnel to nations which are suffering the most from the coronavirus. Students are leaving their classrooms to work in hospitals, and volunteers and businesses alike are doing what they can to help doctors and medical organizations for free. In the current circumstances, the provision of mutual aid is precisely what is playing a decisive role in the fight against the pandemic,» said Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov.

«Every day, more and more dedicated and caring people and companies are joining the ‘In this together’ initiative. Everyone can see what our medical professionals are going through, as they go about saving lives in hospitals and as part of ambulance teams. It’s fantastic that we now have a partner that can help medical professionals and their loved ones by addressing those important, day-to-day concerns that they have so little time for at the moment,» said Chairman of the Board of the Association of Volunteer Centres Artem Metelev.

The project includes a service providing personal assistance. Medical organizations can visit the website вашпомощник.мывместе2020.рф, and submit a request for the service, which is then provided to their staff. A reliable assistant will then be assigned, who will be able to provide assistance with day-to-day matters at a time when it’s most needed. An easy-to-use mobile app for doctors makes it simple to submit requests for assistance with purchasing and delivering food, dealing with matters at home, providing remote education for children, and more.

«Today, doctors need our support more than anyone. In order to protect their health and the health of their loved ones, they often stay away from home, and frequently don’t even have time to eat properly. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our healthcare workers for the absolutely crucial work they do. This joint personal assistant initiative means that doctors can entrust their day-to-day concerns to a qualified member of staff, who will not only be able to make important calls and undertake vital tasks, but also monitor the process to ensure everything gets done,» said the Roscongress Foundation’s Deputy Director for Services Ekaterina Rakcheeva.

By working as one for the #InThisTogether initiative, doctors will be able to benefit from comprehensive care and support at a time when it’s most needed.
