Parents of 409 junior pupils who study online in Kirovsk schools in the Lugansk People’s Republic will receive food kits, a Town Hall official said.
“Kirovsk authorities have begun to distribute food kits for junior students; the parents of 409 pupils in 1st through 4th grades will get food kits,” the official said adding that food distribution would compensate hot meal costs to parents.
A kit includes a broad range of products including canned meat, groats, pasta, fruit juices, biscuits and condensed milk said Igor Shilin, director of the school responsible for the action which was launched by the LPR Education and Science Ministry.
In Bryanka, food packages will be distributed to parents of 827 junior pupils.
LPR Education and Science Minister Ivan Kusov earlier said that food kits would be provided every month to schoolchildren who studied from home.
In September 2022, 11 towns and districts of the Republic began the schoolyear online amid the threat of Kiev artillery attacks.*i*v
