The Humanitarian Center's mobile groups delivered survival kits to 100 remote settlements of Donbas
In June the mobile groups of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center delivered 10,000 survival kits to remote little towns and villages of Donbas. Half of them were issued to local civilians in non-government-controlled areas. The second half was issued to internally displaced persons and local residents of the towns on the contact line and government-controlled areas. During the whole project implementation period the Humanitarian Center delivered 22,000 food packages to more than 100 the least accessible villages and towns of Donbas.
The mobile humanitarian aid issuance is taking place in those towns and settlements, where it is not possible to open the fixed issuing point. It is especially relevant for the contact line, which is constantly under shelling and commercial food supplies, as well as humanitarian aid, are very rare there. To reach the smallest and the most forgotten villages on both sides of the contact line and provide the maximum assistance for local civilians – this goal is set for the team of the Humanitarian Center's mobile volunteers.
"The operation of mobile issuing points is equally important as the work of stationary ones. Because there is a great number of small towns and villages in Donetsk region. During our operation there we had a chance to see how highly demanded and required our aid is there. The Humanitarian Center's volunteers arrive in remote villages, where no one ever issued humanitarian aid for people. We see how much they are waiting for this aid. It is literally essential and vitally important for them, – Rimma Fil, the Humanitarian Center's Coordinator, announced.
Thanks to the mobile delivery, the humanitarian aid is received by elderly and disabled people, multi-child families and other vulnerable categories of the population. Also the Humanitarian Center is issuing children packages for babies under two years old.
As of today the mobile humanitarian aid could cover the settlements of Amvrosiivka district in Donetsk region, which is located in non-government-controlled areas. These are the villages Verbivka, Fedorivka, Mnohopillia, Hryhorivka, Volodarske, Hrabske, Uspenka, Kalynove, Manych, Stepne, Blahodatne, Kotovske and other. The aid from Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center in government-controlled areas and on the contact line was issued to residents of Novotroitske, Zoria, Kalchyk, Kurdiumivka, Ocheretyne, Artemove, Dzerzynsk, Verkhnietoretske, Kirove, Orlivka, Tonenke, Umanske, Zhelanne, Petrovske etc.
"The residents of these villages thanked Humanitarian Center's volunteers not only for the aid itself, but for the opportunity to see them. People are frightened by shelling, they are afraid of war. They even go to the grocery with their whole family. And young mothers, when they come to receive their humanitarian aid, keep holding their children and do not let them go even for a second, as they are afraid that shelling may start any moment", – Rimma Fil shared.
