One million people – the Humanitarian Center reported about its work in 2015


On March 10 Kyiv hosted a report back meeting of Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center about its work in 2015

Performance results over 2015.

In 2015 Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center worked in four main directions: delivery and issuance of survival kits for adults and babies up to 35 months old, targeted assistance, psychological support and assistance with medications. The number of people who got real help from Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center since the beginning of its operation reached one million people in October 2015.

"We called this report "Help to Survive". These words give the best explanation for the content of our work in the past year. Helping to survive for those who need help the most is the goal that was set by Rinat Akhmetov, when he established the Humanitarian Center, – Rimma Fil, the Humanitarian Center's Coordinator, said, – The number of people who found themselves in a difficult situation is measured by a figure with six zeros. The number of people provided with the Humanitarian Center's help since the beginning of its operation has exceeded one million people – today this number comprises 1,106,000 people. Rinat Akhmetov will continue helping his compatriots as long as people need help".

The scale of the Humanitarian Center's work in 2015 can be understood by the following examples:

  • The volume of humanitarian aid at 4.6 million survival kits can be compared to the population of three southern regions of Ukraine: Odesa, Mykolaiv and Kherson.
  • Half million people, receiving food aid from the Center every month, can be compared to the population of Mykolaiv or four towns in the Western Ukraine – Ivano-Frankivsk, Uzhhorod, Kamianets-Podilskyi and Mukacheve all together.
  • The distance of 810 ths. kilometres, covered by the Humanitarian Center's truck convoys over the year, would allow going around the globe 20 times.

In May 2015 the Center launched mobile issuance teams that deliver survival kits to the most remote settlements of the front line area. As a result, food products have been issued to local residents and IDPs in 210 Donbas settlements and villages that were visited by mobile volunteer teams at least once.

The Humanitarian Center's focus is helping children. In 2015 Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center supplied food to babies and orphans, provided targeted assistance to conduct complex surgeries. Injured children were provided with the required medical assistance, severely ill kids received pharmaceuticals as part of "Medications for Children" program.

Plans for 2016.

In 2016 the Humanitarian Center is planning to deliver adult and children survival kits to Donbas and provide targeted assistance. Psychologists who took the "War Trauma" training course, provided by Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center, will have an opportunity to improve their qualification in 2016.

A new direction in the Humanitarian Center's work will be rehabilitation of injured children.

"There are 163 injured children in the Humanitarian Center's database: 70% of children were injured in Donetsk region, 30% – in Luhansk. During the entire period of the Center's operation we provide an urgent assistance for treatment of injured Donbas children, helping to save their lives. In 2016, by decision of Rinat Akhmetov, the Humanitarian Center announces the start of its new program called "Rehabilitation of injured children", – Oleksandr Vyshniakov, the Center's Director, stated. – We are ready to help injured children to get back to normal life: provide rehabilitation at specialized centres, and also provide equipment for personal rehabilitation".

The main directions of children rehabilitation are: treatment of neurological diseases, restoration of musculoskeletal system, rehabilitation treatment of internal organs, correction of state after a long surgery, limb and eye prostheses.

Also, in 2016 Rinat Akhmetov Foundation is planning to activate "Say No to Orphanhood" project and start a new direction called "Mentoring". Mentoring is a new direction of the Foundation. The main objective of the project is to prepare orphans for independent living. More details about this direction will be presented by Rinat Akhmetov Foundation in March.

"I want to say the words of gratitude to the Founder of the Humanitarian Center, Rinat Akhmetov. The whole Center's team is thankful for having a chance to be part of his great assistance project", – Oleksandr Vyshniakov, the Center's Director, emphasized
