Humanitarian aid in Donetsk and Luhansk, help for IDPs
Events, which occur in Donbas from the beginning of hostilities, are equally terrible for all of us without reference to the side of the barricade. Political and ideological beliefs must not get in the way of the most important things – to be a human and to be ready to help the destitute.
Nowadays plethora organizations (both in the region and beyond it) provide humanitarian aid in Donbas. Voluntary organizations and charities that render humanitarian aid in Donetsk, Lugansk and other Donbas cities, are more helpful than all the politicians and military formations. In fact, benefactors and volunteers – are the only force that can help people in the ATO area.
Social Initiative “Restoring Donbas” prepared a catalog of organizations and associations that are involved in the providing of humanitarian aid, rehabilitation works, evacuation from the ATO area and support of internally displaced persons. We drew particular attention to organizations, which provide help for children and seniors. We collected the addresses, phone numbers, websites of charities and volunteers in Donetsk and Luhansk, who ready to help residents of Donbas in this difficult period. Moreover, this catalog will be expanded.
Someone requires material and financial help, someone wants to go to another region or rebuild own destroyed house until the winter. Here you can find out where the points of humanitarian aid are located, how to get it and what it requires.
We do not divide charities and voluntary organizations on the ideology or motives items. We bring together all of those, who are ready to help residents of Donetsk, Lugansk, Makeyevka, Gorlovka and many other cities in our region.
Another purpose of this catalog – to coordinate the gathering of humanitarian aid, point to departments of medicines, food and clothing collection, for not indifferent people. The need for it is much more important than assistance, which Donbas is provided today.
