“Since 2016, twice a year we hold city fairs of good in the parks and squares in each district of the city. This is a unique project, there is no similar format in other cities of Russia”, said M. Ismagilov. He added that more than 20 million rubles have been already collected at fairs, which are aimed at helping those in need. “It is a merit of schoolchildren and their parents, teachers and principals, district administration officials, entrepreneurs, and all concerned citizens”, said the speaker.
