Kazan volunteers began delivering essential food and medicines to elderly citizens living alone. Volunteers purchase food and medicines at the expense of pensioners. Today, Lyubov Safargaliyeva, an 80-year-old resident of the Vakhitovsky district, was one of the first to use this service.
Due to the epidemiological situation, senior citizens are advised to stay at home, if possible, and avoid public places, including shops, pharmacies and banks. A hotline for home delivery of food and medicines has been launched in the capital of Tatarstan for elderly and disabled people living alone. The shopping list can only contain medicines and essential goods – cereals, milk, bread, etc.
Today, the first call was received to the hotline of Vakhitovsky and Privolzhsky districts administration. The pensioner asked to buy a grocery set - sugar, buckwheat, rice, tea and chicken.
After receiving personal protective equipment at the headquarters, the volunteers visited a pensioner who lives on Khadi Taktash street. Lyubov Petrovna gave money for purchases and within half an hour volunteers brought the order, change and receipt.
Presently, 30 volunteers work at the headquarters to help elderly people living alone.
