Active youth of PJSC “KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT” of Metinvest Group met with veterans of the Great Patriotic War, some of whom worked at the plant for several decades, presented them pecuniary and humanitarian assistance.
There is a quite difficult situation with social benefits in Khartsyzsk, as in many other cities of Donetsk region. Because of hostilities a lot of inhabitants of the town haven’t yet received neither pensions nor social security benefits for several months.
The youth of Khartsyzsk Pipe Plant decided not to stand aside from the problems and first of all to help veterans of the Great Patriotic War, ex-employees of the plant.
Active youth visited veterans, handed flowers and grateful letters for their hard work and presented rewords in the amount of 1000 UAH in the name of administration of the plant. In view of the difficult situation in the region, financial support for veterans was useful. Volunteers also brought food sets from Humanitarian center “Aid+Help” by Rinat Akhmetov foundation . In view of their age, veterans could not receive humanitarian assistance by themselves, so it was brought to their home.
Absolutely everyone was glad to have this unexpected meeting. Nickolay Mikhaylovich Chesnokov was in war as private, he has awards for military services and this man had worked more than 20 years at Khartsyzsk Pipe Plant.
“I am pleased that native plant doesn’t forget me. The best years of my life were here. I am grateful to a worthy change - young plant workers. It became warmer on my soul from their care, attention and kindness ", Nikolai Mikhailovich has said.
The young activists of Khartsyzsk Pipe Plant also were happy to have such meeting.
“It is great, that veterans are in such good mood. They didn’t lose ability to enjoy life despite of all hardships that they had overcome. We want to thank them for their feat, for their long-term work for Khartsyzsk Pipe Plant. We are proud that we live next to these people and we are always ready to help them, " Julia Sherbakova, activist of the young organization, has said.
