On July 8, the Day of family, love and loyalty Vologda Region Governor presented medals of motherhood to women who bring up five children.
Family Day was introduced in Russia in 2008, which was proclaimed the Year of Family. Several years ago, Svetlana Medvedeva introduced the Family Day symbol – a chamomile flower representing innocence and fidelity.
“The family is traditionally the backbone of the state and the foundation of our future, the source of peace and stability,” stressed the Governor. On this day, the warmest words of gratitude are addressed to families raising children, especially large families and foster families. This is a great responsibility and a great joy.
"In the Vologda Region, there are 170,000 families with children. Our task is to create all conditions for the development of children. I sincerely congratulate you on the Day of family, love and loyalty," said Mr. Kuvshinnikov.
In the region, there is a number of programs and regional projects to support and strengthen the family. Families with children are provided with various types of social assistance.
On July 8th six families of the Vologda Region, who have been married more than 25 years received medals “For love and loyalty".
It is in the family that centuries-old traditions are preserved and passed down from generation to generation, which help us to be strong in spirit, and overcome any difficulties.
