It is planned to be escorted by the representatives of the regional branch of the public organization “Russian Union of Afghanistan Veterans.”
According to Viktor Kuvaytsev, the head of Penza city, part of the humanitarian aid will be sent to the Krasnodon city orphanage.
“This is a very troubled institution. There are about 130 children, and about half of them are immobile,” he explained.
Viktor Kuvaytsev said that this time the south-east of Ukraine will receive tinned stewed meat, condensed milk, and personal hygiene products.
According to him, in the future they plan to take into account the requests of the receiving party.
The city head also noted that there will be two additional trips with the essentials thanks to active participation of the Penza residents.
Viktor Kuvaytsev added that the City Duma representatives plan to visit Krasnodon child care institution, but no specific date was named.
In his turn, Sergei Nosko, chairman of the commission for the collection and delivery of humanitarian aid in armed conflicts and emergency situations of the Penza “Russian Union of Afghanistan Veterans” branch, said that a part of the shipment will also be received by the orphanage in Lugansk and the representatives of the People's Militia.
“As our organization is paramilitary, we help the defenders of New Russia, including Penza volunteers whose numbers are quite big there. The essentials include warm clothing, winter equipment, shoes, medicine and more,” he said.
