An activist of the Kazan Volunteers movement Aydar Gabdrakhmanov shared his impressions: “I was the attaché of the head of the UK national team delegation. I am very happy and sincerely thank luck that my contributions and efforts have been highly appreciated. My volunteer journey began in 2014. Since then my life has been closely connected with volunteering and the Kazan Volunteers Team. During that time, I gained so much experience, met reliable friends, and obtained useful skills. And now I am holding this commendation letter signed and given by Rustam Nurgaliyevich in my hands. For me, this is an important achievement providing a powerful impetus for growth. Thank you, my dear team!”
