The BRSM Youth Union has embarked on establishing a team of volunteers Kind Heart to help the elderly, Secretary of the BRSM Central Committee, coordinator of the youth movement Aleksandra Goncharova told a BelTA reporter.
The Kind Heart team will include the most experienced BRSM members over 18 years of age. “In order to help the elderly, we have consolidated efforts with local social services centers and the Belarusian Red Cross Society that has a wealth of experience in these matters. Together we will be able to make our work more efficient,” Aleksandra Goncharova said. She noted that volunteers will first of all deliver groceries and medicines to the elderly.
BRSM and local social services centers will receive requests for delivering staple foods through dedicated hotlines. The food will be delivered by social workers and the Red Cross and BRSM volunteers. They will be provided with personal protective gear and name tags and will be properly instructed on how to protect themselves from the infection.
