The world is not without good people


They say that the world is not without good people, and we have convinced ourselves in this statement yesterday. The displaced from the Donetsk region man came to «Station Chuguev», a single father with disabled child, and brought a package of food for the needy people in the food. He has not a large income, but he has something to help the same people as he is, to the people affected by this terrible war, that is why he without any doubt brought this little help. All employees of our modest point were struck by his noble and decided to repay him in any way. We took him to the Children’s room, he could chose a toy for his child, and by happy coincidence, he caught the eye of a small teddy elephant, beloved by his daughter, and we certainly presented him this toy. Unfortunately, the benefactor did not want to be photographed.

«Station Region» team in Chuguev


Chuguevskaya Human Rights Group, together with volunteers of «Station Chuguev» understands that our main goal — is to help the internally displaced persons as by the legal, psychological counseling, and by the provision of humanitarian aid because of many people, leaving their home took a little due to first of all it was important to save their lives and the lives of their loved ones. In this regard, several representatives from both organizations visited v. Pechenegi on the 4-th of December this year in order to please them of some necessary household items. However, the greatest emphasis was placed to help IDPs by the legal advice. At this time, there were more than enough consultations, but what is the most surprising, whether displaced persons imbued with the soul to the locals, or vice versa, and this became a key factor, but the most frequently asked question was to obtain land in Pechenegi or anywhere in the district, they arranged to get some room, where they could grow roots and live with peace of mind. Some people spoke about the return home with great regret, many people simply do not understand how they can come back, if everything is looted, broken, destroyed and where to get means to restore that all.

People were interested and in the issues of employment, by the way, it is also due to the fact that people want to stay and do not move anywhere already. It should be noted the work the head of the Pechenejskiy employment center have done, who tried to help to the maximum number of people to get the coveted job. Also people frequently asked questions on outstanding loans. There is no secret that most of people who took out loans, before the war, now have enormous difficulties with banks. Our lawyers advised at first contact the hotline of the bank to all IDPs with similar problems, and then go to the bank and ask for a statement with requesting of the recalculation. However, everyone understands that the banks are not willing to do it, though, there are positive results.

At the end of the abovementioned meeting, our representatives of Chuguev human rights group and representatives of «Station Chuguev» pleased the people with the humanitarian aid and the various "buns" for children.

We need help again


I am writing rarely in recent days I’ve probably forgotten how to already.

I have no time to do to laptop. I steep as a squirrel in a cage every day, and it seems to me everything is in one place ...

In general, we need help again.

We settled a family a day before yesterday.

Very difficult family... 5 children. The youngest is 8 months old, the eldest — 10 years.

We need to resolve a lot of questions. With documents and benefits for children, and with a birth

certificate for the youngest daughter ... In general, it’s really hard...

Dear friends, if someone wants to bring food for children, I will be grateful. While we are working to put in order the documents and transfer it for registration the allowances, children need a little support ...

And, as before, we continue to collect everything that can be useful at home. Furniture, bedding, kitchen utensils ...

If you have something else suddenly, my friends, please, write !! ))

And we continue to distribute all that we’ve collected as usually)))

Thank you very much for any help!

P.S. Special thanks to Oleg, who brought a package of food for kids today!

The 5th of December. Children’s room


The 5th of December. Children’s room. 6 boys and 7 girls. Masha – you must wear a hat – it’s sunny!

Aksinia: No, it’s a winter outdoor, I was lying in the snow, and my mother took a picture ... Masha and Aksinia are here from the midday, and their mothers are at the master class. There were two babies with their daddies in the morning. It's so touching when Dad is busy with children and the parent and the child are having fun.
