ICF partners with ‘Sakhovat’ aid centre in Moscow
International Chodiev Foundation partners with ‘Sakhovat’ aid centre aiming to provide support to migrant workers from Uzbekistan and their families living in Moscow and Moscow oblast. Large families in need, elderly people and people disabilities will benefit from this aid at first.
‘Sakhovat’ was established in Moscow with the aim of providing humanitarian aid during the coronavirus pandemic by a group of compatriots with support from the Embassy of Uzbekistan in Russia. Partnership with ‘Sakhovat’ continues our extensive social support programme that has already provided essential food and sanitising supplies to families and elderly people across the country amid COVID-19 pandemic.
ICF founder Dr Patokh Chodiev noted that the Foundation fully supports ‘Sakhovat’ initiative and everyone who is not indifferent to the Uzbek citizens who are experiencing difficulties while far from home, in this challenging time. ICF is providing financial support that will help ‘Sakhovat’ expand geographically and cover as many people in need as possible.
ICF has earlier 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.
