Humanitarian aid for new Russian regions was collected at the Artek MDC
The Artek International Children’s Center hosted the first event this year to collect humanitarian aid for participants in a special military operation and residents of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions. Employees of the structural divisions of the children’s center brought essential items to the collection point: food, personal hygiene products, warm clothes, children’s toys, which will then be given to residents of the new constituent entities of the Russian Federation.
Actions to provide assistance to residents of new regions of the Russian Federation are held regularly at Artek. By taking part in them, the employees of the children’s center not only do a good deed, but also express their civic position. Workers at the Land of Childhood are confident that even a little help can make the world a kinder and better place.
This month we took stock of our humanitarian actions over the past year. According to estimates, during eight humanitarian collections in 2023, we collected about 9 tons of humanitarian aid, which we sent to fighters and residents of new territories. “Artek” never stays away from socially significant events in our country. From the very morning, the staff of the children’s center brings food and personal hygiene products. Such involvement makes it possible to feel unity and involvement in a good cause.— said Natalya Goncharova, head of the psychological support department of the Artek MDC.
Throughout its almost 100-year history, Artek has never remained aloof from common troubles and is one of the first to come to the aid of those who need it. Humanitarian and patriotic actions are supported not only by Artek employees, but also by pupils of the children’s center. On every shift, Artek residents write letters to the military, expressing their support for the defenders of the Motherland, and collect books for their young peers in new Russian regions.
