The Humanitarian Center is forced to increase the intensity of deliveries to Donbas
This week, from the 2nd till the 6th of November 2015, Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center will increase the intensity of humanitarian aid deliveries. This is due to requirement in food stock replenishment at the logistic centres in order to avoid the closing of aid issuing points.
The Humanitarian Center will send four convoys to deliver food products for Donbas civilians. Three of them will leave for Donetsk and one will go to Mariupol, which will allow forming 150,000 food packages for adults and 2,250 survival kits for children.
"Today we observe some kind of panic at the food market. Some of our suppliers are trying to hold their products in order to sell them later at more favourable prices. Despite the fact, that we purchase thousands tons of their products. We need to make fast decisions. Therefore, it is possible that we make certain changes in our food packages, but humanitarian aid issuance will not be suspended, it will continue", – Oleksandr Vyshniakov, Director of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center, commented.
As of today, there are 50 fixed issuing points opened in Donbas on both sides of the contact line.
