Mobile volunteers issue humanitarian aid under the threat of shelling


The hostilities are continuing in the armed conflict area of Donbas. Civilians keep suffering.

"Thousands of "grey zone" residents live along the contact line. Many settlements have no working stores, pharmacies and public transport. These settlements and villages have their humanitarian aid delivered by mobile teams of the Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center. They take trips to 90% of the "grey zone", – Mykhailo Katerynchak, the Manager of "Assistance to the Population" program of the Humanitarian Center, says.

In July mobile teams will visit about 50 settlements in the "grey zone", volunteers will deliver and issue more than 25,000 food packages.

Over the entire period of its operation Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center issued 11,804,000 survival kits on both sides of the contact line. The Center's mobile teams started their operation in May 2015. This format of food package delivery allows helping in the places, where it is impossible to open fixed issuing points.
