Novorossiysk-Krymsk: Direct Aid

The flloding in the city of Krymsk on JUly 6-7 2012 has turned a real tragedy for Krasnodar region, that took many lives. Hundreds of families lost everything, including the roofs over their heads. Emergency Ministry workers, firefighters and soldiers sifted through the wreckage and pumped water out of courtyards and basements. Novorossiysk, where the memory of the terrible flood of 2002 is still fresh, was among the first to respond.

Volunteers, at their own peril, rushed to help the victims as soon as they heard about the disaster in Krymsk. People hired trucks, purchased and collected humanitarian goods and sent aid in any way they could to the devastated city and surrounding villages.

A group of off-road enthusiasts drove to Krymsk in their own vehicles to help emergency workers and local residents. NCSP employees also joined the team of volunteers. Workers at NCSP companies, on their own initiative, began collecting money to help the victims and quickly collected more than 150,000 rubles. Everyone contributed, from directors to entry-level employees. The money was used to buy medicine, personal hygiene products and children’s goods, and several trucks of humanitarian aid from NCSP employees were sent to Krymsk on July 9th and 10th.

NCSP management decided to provide assistance to the families of those who perished, as well as to the city of Novorossiysk. NCSP Group gave every family that lost someone in the flood 50,000 rubles and donated 5 million rubles to the Novorossiysk city administration to help finance the flood cleanup effort.
