Thanks to the team of the program “Wait for me” and volunteers who support the project, more than 218 thousand people met. And our highly social talk show “DNA” helped more than 500 families to start a new life. we really want to help the elderly who have been left without support, realize their creative potential, feel care, help to meet again with family and friends and make their dreams come true, “says Timur Weinstein, General Producer of NTV.
