Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center will help the victims of shelling in Donetsk, Mariupol and Horlivka


Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center will provide targeted assistance to injured civilians of Donetsk, Sartana settlement (Mariupol) and Horlivka, who suffered the shelling on August 16, 2015.

According to the Humanitarian Center there are six injured people in the hospitals of Mariupol now.

A 10-year-old girl with severe injuries and shrapnel wounds was taken to the municipal hospital #3. At night she had her leg partially amputated. The girl's mother is in the 4th municipal hospital in critical condition. There are four more people from 25 to 78 years old taken to this hospital. Two of them are in critical condition and two other are in state of moderate severity.

"Our volunteers are already in the hospital, where the girl has been taken. We are waiting for doctors' request for essential medications, and we will try to provide the first batch by tonight. We are also ready for quick response to the requests for adult civilians injured in Donetsk and Mariupol. All the hospitals have the contact information of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center", – Iryna Temerko, the Head of "Targeted Assistance" at Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center, commented. 

According to the Humanitarian Center, there are local civilians, who suffered the shelling yesterday, staying in Donetsk hospitals. The same information is coming about Horlivka.

"We have no precise information on the number and condition of victims in Donetsk and Horlivka. We are ready to help the injured people with medications. Unfortunately, due to restrictions there is still no working mechanism for importing medicines. As an operative measure, we suggest the relatives of the injured people to leave for the peaceful territory of Donbas, such as Artemivsk, Kramatorsk and Mariupol, and purchase all the necessary medicine there. We keep on looking for the ways to solve this problem ", – Iryna Temerko said.

Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center kindly asks relatives and friends of the wounded civilians, and those who know any information on the victims of military actions that took place on August 16, to contact the Humanitarian Center's hotline: 0800 509 001.
