Metalloinvest ‘Healthy Child’ programme winners receive awards
On 5 June in Stary Oskol, the fifth official awards ceremony for winners of the Metalloinvest ‘Healthy Child’ programme took place, for the best projects aimed at improving the children’s healthcare system and boosting the qualification level of specialists working with children.
The programme’s budget in each of the four towns in which Metalloinvest operates amounted to 2 mn roubles. The majority of these funds were allocated in the form of grant support to the implementation of the best healthcare projects. In addition, as part of the programme, funds were provided to conduct expensive MRI scans in Stary Oskol, educational events for participants, and support for non-profit partner organisations in Gubkin, Zheleznogorsk and Novotroitsk.

The initiative combines two highest priorities for all of us: health and children. I am grateful to all participants in the programme for developing and implementing their projects aimed at strengthening the health of the younger generation of Stary Oskol residents. May health, happiness and joy flourish in every home, along with the ‘Healthy Child’ programme.”
