ACTING GOVERNOR OF TOMSK REGION WITH THE HELP OF STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES OF THE TSPU SENT 13 TONS OF HUMANITARIAN AID TO DONBASS
This is the ninth time humanitarian aid has been sent from the region to the inhabitants of the DNR, LNR and other liberated territories of Ukraine. The collection of humanitarian aid is carried out in all municipalities, among various organizations, including the Tomsk State Pedagogical University. The new shipment of humanitarian aid was organized by Acting Governor of the Tomsk region Vladimir Vladimirovich Mazur. The students of the Tomsk State Pedagogical University also joined the initiative. They were led by Vice-Rector for Educational and Youth Policy Dmitry Borisovich Nasonov who told about the educational mission with refugees and the creation of the documentary film "Unlost Childhood" by representatives of the university.
Kits of humanitarian aid included food (vegetable oil, canned meat and fish, cereals, pasta, tea, cookies, condensed milk), hygiene products, household chemicals, towels, bedding. Mazur thanked the townspeople for their caring and responsiveness:
"Residents of the Tomsk region were among the first to respond to the call for help. Every day they bring the necessities to the collection centers for those who have suffered from this tragedy. Today we are sending already the ninth batch of humanitarian cargo. And, of course, we continue to collect, and will continue to help those in need.
The collection points accept items and food necessary to cover basic needs. However, Tomsk State Pedagogical University more often receives stationery and books that are needed to organize educational activities for children. Future teachers, who initiated the meeting with refugees from the places of special operations, are also actively involved in the support process.
"In addition to humanitarian aid, which is collected by universities-paricipants of the Great Tomsk University, the Pedagogical team decided to provide residents of the DNR and LNR with psychological support as well, — said D.B. Nasonov at the meeting. — To implement the mission, together with the students of the TSPU, we went to the temporary refugee settlements in Lipetsk and Voronezh... In the process of work and communication with the evacuees we created a film "Unlost Childhood", the viewing of which can dispel all doubts about the need for a special operation".
The documentary "Unlost Childhood" is available at the university's public resources. Humanitarian aid collection points are still open for anyone who wants to help the residents of Donbass. At the TSPU, you can leave kits at the Primary trade union organization of students (Komsomolsky prospect 75).
