On April 10, a regional food marathon Basket of Kindness was held in the Rostov Region, in which almost one and a half thousand volunteers took part! The gathering was simultaneously held in 660 stores all the region. We collected 24 tons of food aid, from which our volunteers formed 4,000 food packages, and handed them over to needy families with children and the elderly in the region.

At the end of the month, from April 22 to April 24, the Basket of Kindness marathon was simultaneously held in 59 settlements across the country! Such large cities as Novosibirsk, Krasnodar, Voronezh, Chelyabinsk and many others took part in the gathering. In three days, we managed to collect 26,094 kg of food for 2,175 families.

Procter & Gamble, Foodbank Rus and the Russian Red Cross have launched the Clean Help Marathon to support Russians in particular need of protection during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

During the campaign, with the support of trusted partners with an international reputation, more than 17 tons of P&G brand products will be handed over to Russian families and social institutions. Targeted assistance will be provided to families with many children, the elderly and low-income people.
