In Irkutsk, within the framework of the interdepartmental charitable action “Get a child to school”, law enforcement officers and representatives of the public presented schoolchildren with schoolbags and stationery kits. In the regional center alone, employees of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service for the Irkutsk Region, the police, the FSB, the Ministry of Emergencies, the Investigative Committee and the Prosecutor’s Office have collected more than 100 completed school backpacks.
Law enforcement officials visited Irkutsk families who are experiencing difficulties in preparing their children for the school year, talked with schoolchildren, wished them only good grades and presented them with new satchels. Children looked at the contents of the portfolios with interest and took pictures with the guests as a keepsake.
“Caring for the younger generation is one of the strong traditions of GUFSIN institutions,” says Vladimir Balandin, one of the active participants in the “Get the child to school” campaign, employee of the escort department of the GUFSIN of Russia in the Irkutsk region. “The employees willingly supported this charity event, and on the Day of Knowledge, each team with gifts and congratulations will visit the children’s institution assigned to it. We hope that our support will help the children learn with pleasure and set only the right life goals for themselves.
In 2021, the entire personnel of the institutions of the GUFSIN of Russia in the Irkutsk region will take part in the fifth interdepartmental action “Get the child to school”.
