MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Chechnya’s Akhmad Kadyrov Fund has organized delivery of more than ten tonnes of food and other relief aid to Syria, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said on Thursday.
"On Wednesday, thousands of women and children received food products, baby foods, blankets, etc. - ten tonnes in all - from the Akhmad Kadyrov Fund. The Fund’s volunteers delivered the aid to temporary accommodation centers and refugee camps," Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram.
The Akhmad Kadyrov Fund was set up in 2004 to offer charity assistance and create jobs for Chechen population. Since then, it has extended assistance not only to residents of Chechnya and people living in other Russian regions, but also to people in Somalia and Syria.
Thus, in September 2016, the Fund sent more than 2,500 sheep, 100 bulls and ten camels to residents of Syria’s Damascus and its suburbs, to Latakia, Tartus and Aleppo on the occasion of the Moslem festival Kurban Bairam. The Fund also provided 7,000 Syrian children with school kits.
