Own Base of Beneficiaries
We are gradually expanding our representation in the regions. Now we have regional offices in 11 regions of Russia. And we actively started to create our own base of beneficiaries. This will help us know exactly the number of those in need, promptly provide assistance, including giving out products from donors with a short shelf life.
In order to become one of our wards, you must fill out a questionnaire on the website and attach documents confirming the need for assistance.
