"We want the "Man overboard!" signal received by sailors to become effective in our daily life. So that we are not afraid to provide support to those who need it" - spoke about the motives for his participation at the event, Roman.

During the experiment, funds will be raised for the treatment of Ekaterina Balyka, a mother of two children who underwent a kidney transplant and now needs constant drug therapy. How you can help Katya is written on her page on the foundation's website.
