ICF completes Stage 3 of a social support programme in response to COVID-19 pandemic
ICF prepared the third batch of humanitarian aid and delivered it today to the Charity Coordination Centre in Tashkent. As two previous batches, this one contains 1500 prepacked food boxes and tons of food supplies in bulk. As we wrote before, everyone who is need of aid can submit their request to the Centre by dialling ’11-97′.
Volunteers of the Centre, representatives of the local communities, the Mayor’s office and the Uzbek Youth Association handle aid requests, pack and deliver aid provided by the philanthropists.
ICF has joined governmental efforts to mitigate the negative impact of the global pandemic on Uzbekistan. On 19 March 2020, the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev issued a decree outlining priority measures to support the population, sectors of the economy and business entities amid pandemic.
