MMK Charity Fund Directs 197m RUR to Care Program

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 8, 2017. Metallurg Charity Fund (supported primarily by Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Work (MMK)) directed over 197m RUR to its Care Program, MMK Information & PR Department reports.

The program involves more than 30,000 retirees, people with disabilities, and low-income groups who used to work at industrial enterprises as well as Magnitogorsk’s and the nearby settlements’ civil service sector.

‘This Care Program aims to improve the living standards of the elderly and consists of several steps. First, over 14,000 retirees from among MMK’s and other enterprises’ former employees receive a monthly allowance to complement their state pensions. Next, around 3,000 retirees who used to work in the state-run education, healthcare, culture, and sports organizations receive a quarterly allowance as well. Third, people in retirement, people with disabilities, and low-income locals — some 120 people all in all — get their free lunches at a special canteen. Finally, our civil activists also congratulate the long-service former employees on their birthdays and give them some presents to celebrate the occasion,’ the Department says.
