Food Assistance From the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation: European Quality and Reliability
The Rinat Akhmetov Foundation continues to provide humanitarian assistance to the country. Overall, 200,000 Ukrainians will receive food assistance packages from the Foundation. Part of those will be delivered from Europe. To that end, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation, DTEK Group and Metinvest jointly opened a hub in Poland for the supply of humanitarian aid from the European Union to Ukraine.
‘These food assistance packages are provided with packing lists indicating their composition and location where they were packed. The food packages are assembled according to the advice of the World Health Organization. The latter gives its recommendation on the energy value of such a package based on the average number of calories an adult needs. The composition also necessarily includes proteins and carbohydrates. Such package is designed for a period from five to seven days,’ says Oleksandr Vyshniakov, the director of the regional development department in Metinvest Group.
The packages include some essential food products, namely condensed milk, flour, pasta, cereals, sugar, some canned food, oat flakes and sunflower oil. But the composition of food packages can vary depending on the situation and region, while their energy value is maintained.
The assistance is provided under the program Rinat Akhmetov – Saving Lives. During 16 years of its work, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation helped eight million people survive, three and a half million of them were saved in Donbass.,
