We live in a huge and paradoxical world. Here, hunger neighbors with luxury, poverty – with wealth, happiness – with grief. Some people in our world press smartphone buttons, drive cars, fly by air, bathe in a hot shower. And someone picks up water with a bucket from a muddy river and will never learn to read and write.

Medicine over the last century has advanced tremendously. Doctors have learned to transplant human organs and grow artificial ones. But people still get sick and die from diseases. But, alas, to the majority of mankind, all these achievements of medicine are inaccessible. Often, medicine is powerless when it is necessary to save a loved one or safely. give a birth to a baby.
