We hope that this humanitarian assistance will provide at least the minimum that needy families need.»

«We have a social commission that will study humanitarian aid, the circle of the most needy families will be determined, all the kits will be given to them,» said the Repatriation Minister Beslan Dbar, thanking the organizers of the action.

Gratitude for the help was expressed during the transfer of clothing directly by the wards of the organizations.

«I have six children. The oldest is 17, the youngest is 8. I bring them up alone, my husband has gone five years ago. Of course, «Kiaraz» helps us. And today we are all grateful to our brothers from Turkey and the World Abaza Congress for winter clothes. You have no idea what kind of help this is,» said Nani Tsurtsumiya, the ward of «Kiaraz», from the village of Lashkindar, Ochamchira district.
