Chechnya’s Akhmad Kadyrov Fund has organized delivery of more than ten tonnes of food and other relief aid to Syria, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said on Thursday that his Republic has delivered over ten tonnes of food and other aid to war torn Syria.
The donation was made through Akhmad Kadyrov Fund, a charity established in 2004 to assist Chechens, but has since extended to help others in different Russian regions, Somalia and also Syria.
“On Wednesday, thousands of women and children received food products, baby foods, blankets, etc. – ten tonnes in all – from the Akhmad Kadyrov Fund. The Fund’s volunteers delivered the aid to temporary accommodation centers and refugee camps,” Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram.
Thus, in September 2016, the Fund sent more than 2,500 sheep, 100 bulls and ten camels to residents of Syria’s Damascus and its suburbs, to Latakia, Tartus and Aleppo on the occasion of the Moslem festival Kurban Bairam, and also provided 7,000 Syrian children with school kits, TASS explained.
