On 6 August, Rinat Akhmetov’s Foundation launched the Humanitarian Centre “Aid+Help” to help all the residents of Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts who suffered during the hostilities. The Humanitarian Centre pools the resources of all SCM Group’s businesses, FC Shakhtar and also Rinat Akhmetov Foundation for Development of Ukraine that has been evacuating and providing temporary accommodation to the people from the anti-terrorist operations area since May 2014. The Humanitarian Centre’s key missions include evacuating and accommodating the internally displaced people and supplying humanitarian and targeted help. 

Over the month, the Centre has evacuated 15,000 people. Overall, the Foundation and the Humanitarian Centre have taken 26,393 people to the safe areas in Ukraine. The Humanitarian Centre helped to provide temporary accommodation to 6,231 people evacuated to safe regions in Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Kharkov, Kherson, Nikolayev, Dnepropetrovsk and Odessa oblasts.
