UrBC, Magnitogorsk, December 27, 2019. Metallurg Charity Foundation, for which Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) acts as the primary benefactor, coordinated the usual end-of-year meeting with heads of children’s specialized facilities located in Magnitogorsk and nearby rural areas on the site, MMK’s Information & PR Department reports.

The meeting was also attended by Metallurg Charity Foundation’s Member of the Board of Trustees and Russian State Duma deputy Vitaly Bakhmetyev, Metallurg Charity Foundation’s Member of the Board and Head of Magnitogorsk Social Welfare Department Irina Mikhaylenko, Senior Manager at MMK’s Social Programs Group Fedor Nasledov, Head of Information, PR & Advertising Department at MMK Kirill Golubkov, and representatives of a number of charities.

The meeting was dedicated to looking into Our Children Program’s performance and to adopting a plan for New Year’s events.

‘The benefactors (Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works being the largest donor) directed more than RUB 9m to the organization of New Year events in children’s specialized facilities and in Magnitogorsk schools, kindergartens, clubs, and local councils. Some of these events involve Magnitogorsk Assembly and Chelyabinsk Region Legislative Assembly deputies. New Year’s presents - clothes, footwear, sports appliances, office equipment, and much else besides - will be given to charity program participants, children with disabilities, families with multiple children who’ve lost their primary breadwinner and have registered with the foundation, and children’s specialized facilities located in Magnitogorsk and nearby rural areas,’ the company says.

15,000 presents will be given out at New Year. These were carefully picked by an ad hoc committee in the course of a competitive selection procedure as early as August 2019. 23,000+ children and teenagers will get involved in the program.
