MOSCOW, October 12 (Itar-Tass) - On the World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev addressed staff of hospices, charity and volunteer organisations, the governmental press service said on Saturday.
“People working at those facilities are special. Every day they face terminally ill people, but find own energy to comfort them, to ease the sufferings,” Medvedev’s address reads.
“The World Hospice and Palliative Care Day attracts the public attention to the problems of terminally ill people. However, their diseases do not mean those people cannot receive assistance. It is most important they have good and comfortable conditions, it is necessary to stop their pain, fear and loneliness. They should use fully the rest of their lives.”
“To an extent, development of this sphere is a big test for the society in humanism, sympathy and spiritual energy. Russia’s traditions of charity and compassion have always been strong. Nowadays, the authorities favour their recovery and development. Any form of participation in that work not only helps the patients, but enriches spiritually every person, who believes it a civil and human obligation to care for other people’s tragedies,” the prime minister said.
“I am very grateful to those who cannot ignore other people’s pain,” Medvedev said in conclusion.
