The awards are given to children and young people under 23 years old who unselfishly come to the aid of people, save lives and help others overcome difficult life situations.
The results of the annual All-Russian public and state initiative “Warm Heart” were summed up in the capital. Among the laureates of the award are young Muscovites and representatives of public organizations of the city, always ready to help other people.
“This award is an indicator of the nobility of our youth. Their responsiveness, humanity, willingness to sacrifice without hesitation for the salvation and welfare of others are worthy of thousands of praises and awards. We are proud that there are such people. And most importantly, there are a lot of them, ”she stressed
Ekaterina Dragunova, Chairman of the Committee for Public Relations and Youth Policy of the city of Moscow.
Two Moscow schoolchildren became prize winners. One of them is 13-year-old Muscovite Dima Meshkov. Last May, he helped pull out a little girl who had fallen into it from a three-meter drainage well. And the eighth grader Nikita Chernenko, while on vacation in the Republic of Khakassia, was able to revive a child who fell into the river. He removed the water from his lungs and restored the boy’s breathing. Nikita learned to provide first aid at school in the classroom of a tourism circle.
“Looking at such sympathetic children and adolescents, many join volunteer activities, social movements and organizations that are involved in rescue and assistance,” said Ekaterina Dragunova.
Among the laureates of the “Hot Heart” there are also representatives of social movements and organizations that are engaged in promoting the ideas of developing the sphere of good deeds and helping other people.
Thus, the award was given to representatives of the Dozor search squad of the College of Automation and Information Technologies No. 20. The guys study historical documents, and then go on search expeditions to find soldiers who died during the fighting and bury their remains. There are also students with disabilities among the project participants. Along with their peers, these guys spend time in search trips, work with metal detectors, and participate in memory watches.
Another winner this year was the All-Russian Student Rescue Corps. Rescue students take part in the elimination of major emergency situations of a federal scale, projects of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, provide safety at youth forum sites and sports competitions. Volunteers, along with senior comrades, took part in eliminating the consequences of fires in the Trans-Baikal and Krasnoyarsk Territories, floods in the Irkutsk Region, and dismantled the rubble at the site of a gas explosion in the city of Shakhty. They are always ready to help and cope with the task at hand.
