Dear health professionals, I sincerely congratulate you on the Medical Worker Day!
Being a medical worker has always been and is now regarded as an honourable and noble mission. Your activities require high moral and professional qualities, dedication and responsibility. In times of trouble, you help tackle diseases and heal injuries, you bring hope and provide the necessary support. People trust you their most precious thing – life and health.
In armed conflict, the work of a doctor is especially complicated, though very much needed. The military-political confrontation and socio-economic blockade imposed by Ukraine continue in the territory of Donbass for six years. Thanks to your dedication and heroism, mercy and devotion to duty, you have been able to save lives and improve the health of thousands of civilians and servicemen of the Donetsk People’s Republic. People will always remember your feat!
I express my sincere gratitude for your selfless work and dedication, perseverance and patience, kindness and humanity. I wish you good health, happiness and well-being, professional achievements and peaceful skies!
Human Rights Ombudsman in the Donetsk People’s Republic Daria Morozova
