In the beginning of July, the Administration and the Council of Young Professionals of Gazprom Transgaz Ukhta assessed the outcome of the company’s participation in the #WeAreTogether campaign, where 85 volunteers from the company took part in the nationwide charity event aimed at supporting persons with limited mobility, people staying in mandatory quarantine under instructions from supervisory bodies, and the elderly, amid the spread of the new coronavirus infection.
Employees in all regions of the company’s production activities joined the campaign. Applications for participation were received via the company’s hotline.
