After the end of war the requirement in humanitarian aid will not disappear – KIIS
According to the research data of Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS), conducted in early June, 2015, the residents on non-government-controlled areas of Donbas believe that after the end of military actions the requirement in humanitarian need will appear on the first place. On the second place – restoration and repair of housing and other constructions of the infrastructure, on the third place – provision with work places. This was announced during the presentation of sociological research for KIIS for Humanitarian map of needs of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center.
International organizations emphasize that humanitarian aid is very important today.
"We think that recently the situation in Donbas has much deteriorated – people are dying on both sides of the contact line, the infrastructure is destroyed, there are problems with different communications. We are working in close cooperation with Ukrainian Red Cross, but I have to admit that it is difficult for us to comply with newly arising requirements and problems of Donbas civilians. That is why I believe that humanitarian assistance of charitable organizations is very important now. As far as I know, Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center actively working in this direction and provides Donbas residents with all the possible assistance. Rinat Akhmetov is trying to provide the maximum help to people, and the volumes of their work is very impressive, – Nicolas Fleury, Deputy Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Ukraine, said during the discussion of KIIS research.
According to the research data, 52% of respondents needs medications as of today, 41% require food products, and 34% need household goods. The most distressed situation is observed in Stakhanov, Rovenky and Dzerzhynsky. In Stakhanov 80% of respondents said that they needed food, medications, and hygiene products, – Daryna Pyrogova, KIIS expert, announced during the presentation of sociological research.
