“Never was so much owed by so many to so few…”

British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said this about British Royal Air Force crews who bravely defended the skies over their island from fascist Germany in WWII.

Today I would like to repeat those words about all Ukrainian doctors, whose professional holiday we celebrate on the third Sunday of June. About the heroic and brave people who save people in incredibly difficulty conditions of material insufficiency, poverty, and often with their bare hands.

Their unseen daily feats cannot be overestimated.

I’ll tell you a story…

Several years ago, the dearest person in my life, my mother, Liudmyla Oleksandrivna, became ill. It was a question of life or death, cases where people speak about the light at the end of the tunnel and other visions

The doctors in Dnipro literally brought her back from that world.

Until my final day I will be forever grateful to the doctors who saved my mother – Ihor Oleksandrovych Yovenko, Liubov Mykhailivna Neklesa, Liubov Ananiyivna Bardachenko.

Thank your doctors too. Share your stories and use the hashtag #дякуюлікарям!

I believe that doctors don’t just cure illnesses. This is not a mechanical process, it is a labor of the soul. They perform real miracles. They give a part of their health and faith to people who need it.

I thank you, my dear ones!

I promise to do everything I can so that your lives become better, so that your work is properly rewarded. For me this is a matter of person honor.
