Red Cross helps flood victims in Southern Russia

The International Committee of the Red Cross is lending first aid to the flood victims in Southern Russia.

On Tuesday, ICRC employees delivered the aid to the town of Armavir, Krasnodar territory. It will then be distributed among 15,000 victims of the natural calamity, reported the Russian office of the ICRC. A similar operation will be carried out in the republic of Adygeia.

"In an effort to adjust the aid to the demands of Russian flood victims as specified by the Russian authorities, the ICRC has amended the list of goods distributed under the first aid program," said a source in the ICRC office.

As of today, the ICRC has already supplied the flood victims with 274 tons of aid worth a total of 400,000 US dollars. The aid went to 28,000 inhabitants of flooded areas in the North Caucasus.

The ICRC and local Red Cross committees keep evaluating the situation in Southern Russia so as to be able to assess the demands of the flood victims and plan their actions in other populated areas of the region. In order to be able to coordinate the aid efforts in the region, it keeps constantly in touch with the emergencies ministry and the Department of Civil Defence, as well as with other local authorities.
