The “Man of the Year” award is conducted in Yekaterinburg for the fourth time. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the winners are defined not only by the specialists but also by the colleagues. The category “Charity” appeared for the first time this year and immediately embraced the biggest number of participants. The expert commission defined 11 representatives of this professional activity as the nominees. All of them are heads of charity funds and social organizations whose projects turned out to be the most interesting and important for the city and region.
Special appraisal was given to one of the most large-scale directions of the project “He Needs You” – creation of a service for psychological support for the children with oncological diseases in the Center of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology, and the project for the renovation of technical base of children oncologic center
“For children with severe diseases and their parents not only physical, but also psychological rehabilitation is very important and special experts are required, such as clinical psychologists, – said Dudarenko Tatiana. – We don’t know about the Russian experience of creation of psychological services especially in pediatric oncology, except for Moscow and now Yekaterinburg, where such a service operates for more than a year. This is the main victory of our benefactors and the charity fund “Children of Russia” in the project “He Needs You”.
