MAIKOP, December 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Residents and public organizations in Adygeya and the Krasnodar Territory help compatriots from Syria who have returned to the historic motherland.
Members of Adygeya’s public foundation that helps repatriates have suggested using mobile communication to raise money to provide aid for compatriots. Any resident with a mobile telephone can send money, from ten to 15,000 rbls, to the number of the Megaphone, Beeline and MTS companies. The organizers of the charity campaign guarantee to all who will participate that each donation will be used only for the settlement of compatriots from Syria, including students who come from the country to study at the republic's higher-education institutions.
Residents from three Adygey villages of the Krasnodar Territory on Saturday brought money and things in aid amounting to 500,000 rbls to Maikop's main mosque for Syrian repatriates. In the charity campaign, they gathered food products, clothes, children’s toys and necessities.
“We thank all who have responded to the request and provided aid for our sisters and brothers who are in the hard life situation. Today they very much need moral and material support. Syrian Adygeys were informed during Friday's sermon about the charity action,” deputy mufti of Adygeya and the Krasnodar Territory Ibragim Shkhalalov told Itar-Tass.
According to the republic's committee for affairs of nationalities and ties with compatriots and media, more than 250 people have arrived in Adygeya from Syria since the beginning of fighting. Most families, mainly with many children, settle in rural areas. Some Syrian Circassians bought housing in villages, and some rent houses provided by public organization members. Fifty four families live in Maikop. More than 1,000 Syrians whose ancestors left Russia in the 19th-20th centuries have said they want to move to the historic motherland.
