Social movement “Mir Luganschine” activists have provided assistance as part of the “Helping Hand” action to more than 4,200 Lugansk People’s Republics residents who were in self-isolation due to the threat of spread of the coronavirus infection, the social movement’s press service reported.

“Mir Luganschine” has received 4,259 requests for help since the start of the action; assistance was provided to 15 LPR residents over the past week,” the report said.

Activists deliver foodstuffs, water and medications to the elderly, restricted mobility and self-isolated residents. The products are bought the applicants’ money, the press service said.

“Volunteers have been helping the needy in our Republic for two years, mostly disabled people, the elderly and people in self-isolation,” said Diana Gluschevskaya, an aide to the “Volunteer” project coordinator. “We’ve done much work over this time; we are proud of our volunteers for their efforts.”

On April 1, 2020, LPR Head Leonid Pasechnik ordered “Mir Luganschine” to help the residents in self-isolation. The movement promptly recruited volunteers who began to provide assistance to people with restricted mobility from April 3.

“Helping Hand” hotlines:  +38 (72) 503 55 55, +38 (642) 34 55 05.

The World Health Organization called the COVID-19 coronavirus infection a pandemic caused by a novel coronavirus. The first coronavirus infection cases were recorded in China in late 2019. The number of coronavirus contacts across the world has exceeded 489.7 million by now; of those, over 6.1 million people died, according to the World Health Organization.  The LPR confirmed 32,417 COVID-19 cases.

To prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection, the LPR authorities put the Republic on high alert and introduced lockdown measures. *i*t
