RNG Sends Humanitarian Supplies to Those Affected by Flooding in Yakutia Settlements


Humanitarian supplies, including the basic necessities, were delivered to the flood victims in Namsky District. The kits were purchased as part of the agreement between the Company and the All-Russian Public Organisation “Russian Red Cross”. Under this agreement, an emergency fund for quick emergency response was formed in Yakutsk.

A regional state of emergency was declared in Yakutia due to the difficult flood situation. It is the worst in three — Olyokminsky, Nyurbinsky, and Namsky — districts of the republic. In the latter alone, residents of nine settlements have been affected by the disaster.

RNG financial support allowed the Yakut Regional Branch of the Russian Red Cross to purchase humanitarian aid kits in advance and to promptly deliver those to the people in the emergency zone.

It was volunteers from the local quick-emergency-response teams who assembled the kits and forwarded them. Volunteer training is another part of the cooperation between the Russian Red Cross and the Company.
