Operation of the Rinat Akhmetov HC has been blocked
Armed men have blocked the distribution centre at the Donbass Arena and distribution outlets of the Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Centre in the territory which has been temporarily out of Ukraine’s control. The Humanitarian Centre has no reliable information about the reasons for such actions. The premises, equipment and all humanitarian aid are blocked, with the centre volunteers having no access to them.
Over half a million elderly people, people with disabilities, young mothers will not be able to receive their survival kits. The Humanitarian Centre is ready to resume its operation as soon as the distribution centre and distribution outlets get unblocked.
More information can be found on the website and in social media of the Humanitarian Centre, as well as via the hotline 0800 509 001.
