Sloviansk, June 27, 2014
In the course of the discussion of the situation, established in the city and the region, it was decided to organize distribution of humanitarian aid in three parishes of Sloviansk: in St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (near the railway station), in the Churches of Resurrection of Christ (Solzavodskaya Street) and St. Seraphim (Cherevkovka village).
Sloviansk residents have not received any wages, pensions, or other social benefits for already two months. Counters of the city shops and chemists (pharmacies) are all but empty. City residents turn to the churches for the most necessary things: flour, salt, matches, pain relievers. Priests are doing their best to help all those in need, but their resources are limited.
Collection of foodstuff and medicaments for the residents of besieged Sloviansk is arranged in Horlivka churches. The collection coordinator is Krivonog Larisa Petrovna, tel.: +38 (095) 425-43-85.
Earlier the diocese already arranged the collection of medicaments and food for the city hospitals. The medical staff and patients express their enormous gratitude to all those who have opened their hearts to their trouble.
