13 remaining residents of Pisky settlement receive food products from Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center


On April 14 the Center's volunteers managed to deliver humanitarian aid to Pisky. There are 13 people living in this contact line settlement now, back in the peacetime the population of Pisky reached 5,000 residents. Food products for remaining residents of the settlement near Donetsk were delivered by volunteers of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center.

Pisky settlement was severely damaged during two years of the military conflict: most of the buildings are destroyed here, shelling resumes frequently, and there is no connection and no entry.

"People live in totally inhumane conditions. There are no working food stores and hospitals here. According to local residents, nobody delivers humanitarian aid to Pisky, – Yevheniia Rzaieva, the Head of "Humanitarian Aid" direction at Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center, commented. – For the second time our volunteers managed to deliver survival kits to the settlement. The first trip was made in January this year, we gave food to 18 people back then, this time the packages were issued to 13 people. That's the number of residents remaining there".

The same day the Center's team of volunteers visited three more settlements located near Pisky in the "grey zone": Sieverne, Vodiane and Opytne. They are also located on the very contact line. Altogether they issued food packages to 220 residents of these settlements.

"The Humanitarian Center is closely following the situation and always delivers humanitarian aid to the most remote villages of "grey zone" that desperately need it. Volunteers often work in bulletproof vests and risk their lives to help people in distress", – Rzaieva shared.

Mobile teams of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center have already delivered aid to 425 Donbas settlements. Mobile food delivery allows helping people in "grey zone" and remote villages in non-government-controlled areas, where it is impossible to open a fixed issuing point. The project was launched in May 2015. As of April 15, 2016, the humanitarian aid from the Humanitarian Center's mobile volunteers was received by more than 124,000 people.
