Charity approves over 1,300 aid requests from Lugansk region residents since January
LUGANSK, March 26 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The Miloserdiye (Compassion) charity organisation has approved more than 1,300 requests for financial assistance from residents of the Lugansk People’s Republic and Kiev-controlled areas of the Lugansk region since the beginning of this year, Miloserdiye chairman Yuriy Yurov told the Lugansk Media Centre.
The Commission approved another 150 requests for help from residents of the LPR and Kiev-held areas at today’s meeting,” Yurov said. “It has granted a total of 1,356 such requests since the beginning of this year.”
The applicants will be notified about the start of payments on the applications reviewed on Tuesday.
In 2018, Miloserdiye approved and funded 4,808 financial aid requests from Lugansk region residents. In the second half of 2017, it approved 1,055 such requests.
More residents of Kiev-held areas have been seeking help from Miloserdiye despite various impediments created by Ukrainian authorities, Yurov said.
Miloserdiye was set up under the aegis of the Donbass people reunification humanitarian programme. It provides financial aid to Lugansk Region residents in difficult circumstances, including residents of Kiev-held areas. Priority is given to the applicants needing money for treating serious diseases.
Residents of the LPR and Kiev-held areas of the Lugansk region can phone +38-095-821-41-48, +38-072-102-60-93 to get a consultation.
On February 17, 2017 the DPR and LPR Heads approved the program of humanitarian assistance to residents living in the Kiev-controlled part of Donbass. The main goal of the programme is to support socially vulnerable groups in Kiev-held areas. It envisions financial and medical aid and education services.
The LPR Telecom and Mass Communications Ministry launched the humanitarian programme website.
