Background

The Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Group is comprehensively responding to the current situation regarding the spread of the new coronavirus in the Russian Federation.

For instance, employees of Saratovgaz and Gazprom Gazoraspredeleniye Saratov Region donated the collected funds for the construction of a new infectious diseases center in Saratov. The future center will have 400 beds, including 250 beds for children and 150 beds for adults.

As part of the charity campaign, employees of Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Ukhta and Gazprom Gazoraspredeleniye Syktyvkar donated RUB 5 million to the regional infectious diseases hospital to purchase personal protective equipment for the medical staff of the specialized COVID hospital.

In the face of the current coronavirus situation, employees of Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Vladikavkaz and Gazprom Gazoraspredeleniye Vladikavkaz provided financing from their personal funds and transferred more than RUB 2 million to the Trustee Fund for supporting medical workers in the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania.

The branch companies of Gazprom Gazoraspredeleniye Lipetsk decided to render aid by distributing food packages among their retired employees who are single or whose children are outside the region. Members of the youth council of the united trade union organization of Gazprom Gazoraspredeleniye Lipetsk also joined the volunteer activity. Moreover, gas workers are providing volunteer organizations with additional vehicles to help them fulfill the requests received via the national helpline.

A volunteer campaign was set up by gas workers in the Stavropol Territory. The volunteer team is composed of 340 members of the youth council of Gazprom Gazoraspredeleniye Stavropol and Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Stavropol. The volunteers render necessary assistance to high-risk citizens: seniors, people with disabilities, people with chronic illnesses, and parents with small children.

The above is only a partial list of the initiatives and programs currently supported and implemented by the Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Group in the regions of the Russian Federation. These volunteer and charity projects and campaigns will continue.
