11:30—12:30
Making 2019 the year of the volunteer in Russia has improved the image of the volunteer movement and contributed to growth in the number of volunteers working in the country.

A traditional part of volunteering that needs to be popularized is donation, including bone marrow donation, which, according to expert estimates, requires at least 500,000 responsible volunteers. The help of strangers ready to become donors brings the hope of recovery the sick and suffering. That is why it is important that the donor movement unite efforts with the authorities, the professional community, public organizations, the media, and business.
