F. Ahmadov addressed the Azerbaijani public through his Facebook page. The message says:
We see that the world we live in is not quite as secure, safe and stable as we thought it was.
An invisible enemy can break through any defense – cells, human, families, cities, territories, and countries and, finally, all of humanity. No one is immune. Absolutely, no one – neither a poor man penniless, nor heir to the throne, and neither an old, nor a baby.
And, so what to do? The answer so simple. We need to come together, take care of others and ourselves, help each other.
The leadership of the country has made difficult, but an important decision as to limit social intercourse as possible to prevent an access of an invisible, but very powerful enemy in every house. And this is a right approach! We need to comply with laws and orders, unconditionally to follow the quarantine regime. I call for patience and courage.
It is rather difficult for the elderly people, large families, people living alone and low-income families. Of course, the state will not leave them in need and trouble and will support them by proving assistance. But, we must also do and support those people as much as we can.
As mentioned above, “AzNar” company provided 1,600 families with food and medicines in Goychay region. During these hard times, it is important that EACH of us take the responsibility and understand the situation and help to their loved ones, relatives, as well as those who are in need.
Together we are stronger! When we stay together, epidemic or pandemic are no threat to us!.”
It should be reminded that the businessman has been investing for many years in opening work places in Goychay and Ismailli region. He is also famous with his wide charitable activities in Azerbaijan. As an example of his charity works, he pays scholarship to a group of students from Art Academy, provides financially the people who need the medical treatment and from time to time renders financial assistance to low-income families.
