Volunteers of the “Kind Hearts” movement of the Rostov-on-Don Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church recently handed over humanitarian aid for disabled children in the much-suffering Donbass.

The assistance included hygiene products, stationery, and educational games, reports the Synodal Department for Charity and Social Service.

The Ukrainian Diocese of Severodonetsk distributed the aid to residents of Lisichansk.

Priests, volunteers, and Sisters of Mercy in Russia regularly send food, household chemicals, water, clothing, shoes, and stationery to temporary accommodation centers in the Donbass, the Synodal Department notes, and dioceses continue to provide targeted assistance to refugees.

To date, the Charity Department has raised $4,478,480 (311.7 million rubles) for refugees and victims in the war zone, and $4,163,315 (289.7 million rubles) for refugees and injured civilians.

The Russian Church has also collected, purchased, and transferred about 3,000 tons of humanitarian aid to refugees and injured civilians.
