?The State Employment Agency (SEA) honours volunteers and volunteer organisers who have been active for the benefit of society in the period from 1 November 2020 to 15 December 2021 with the award "Volunteer of the Year 2021".
?At the beginning of 2020, Imants, who had a successful career in IT, was facing physical and emotional exhaustion. But this hard time did not stop Imants. On the contrary, it encouraged him to think bigger and find ways to help those who are in direct contact with COVID-19 patients, whose working day has no end and whose daily "uniform" is so suffocating...
?Imants is the author of the Hospiss LV campaign "Respite for your own". Last year, 104 medics and 101 accompanying persons enjoyed a three-day rest during the campaign.
?In December this year, the "Respite for our own" campaign resumes and Imants has been entrusted with the full organisation of the campaign. Imants has already identified 40 medical professionals who will soon be able to enjoy a relaxing break and take care of themselves. Imants dedicates a large part of his day to organising the medical campaign and he does it from the bottom of his heart.
Imants Skerstens Thank you very much for your selfless work and big heart! We are proud of you!????
