On December 1, HMMR delivered a Starex (known as H-1 in the region) vehicle to the Children’s Hospice in St. Petersburg in Russia as part of its global CSR campaign under the slogan, “Moving the world together” The vehicle was donated in order to improve children’s mobility in and around downtown St. Petersburg. The donation ceremony was attended by Georgy Poltavchenko, the acting governor of St. Petersburg, and the CEO of Hyundai Motor Russia, who together presented the key to Starex to the director of the Hospice. The Hospice Administration thanked Hyundai, “for allowing children to appreciate the beauty of the wider world outside the Hospice through the windows of the van.”
St. Petersburg Children’s Hospice is an institution caring for children suffering from rare and intractable diseases, such as cancer. It provides a warm and cozy environment different from those of ordinary hospitals.
