Medical volunteers chose Perm State University as a place to run a round table with international students. On 30 November, the activists and audience discussed opportunities of foreign students in volunteering, regarding it as an excellent chance to meet the local Russian culture.
As a movement, the Medical Volunteers are famous for collaborating with more than 1,700 medical, educational, public and other organizations throughout Russia. The movement follows the mission of reviving the charity tradition and assisting health care at works.
To put it simple, what do medical volunteers do?
