LUGANSK, December 28 (Lugansk Media Centre) – The Miloserdiye (Compassion) charity organization approved 4,060 requests for financial assistance from residents of the Lugansk People’s Republic and Kiev-controlled areas of the Lugansk region in 2020, Miloserdiye chairman Yuriy Yurov said.

“The 2020 plan has been met, 4,060 people received benefits, the total amount of the aid paid is more than 100 mln rubles,” Yurov said.

Half of the recipients reside in the LPR, the others live in Ukraine-controlled territories.

"This year made it difficult to provide assistance to those who live in territories temporary controlled by Ukraine, as the only existing crossing point outside Stanitsa Luganskaya was closed for the most part, the passage was extremely limited, we had to look for other options."

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 the LPR approved the program of humanitarian assistance to residents living in the Kiev-controlled part of Donbass. The main goal of the program 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 program website.
