The «Russian Forest» Association delivered lumber to restore children's centers in Nizhneudinsk and Tulun


The National Association of Timber Industry «Russian Forest» delivered the lumber needed to repair buildings and infrastructure of social facilities in Nizhneudinsk and Tulun.


Large-scale flooding in these cities has caused great damage to the social rehabilitation center for minors and the center for helping children left without parental care. Both institutions help orphans, children left without parental care, children from poor families, families with adopted children and disabled children.


The flood partially destroyed the buildings, destroyed the infrastructure — vegetable stores, game and sports grounds. For the restoration required lumber: timber, shtaketnik, boards, plywood, slats. All this is provided by the Association.



«Today, the water has practically disappeared throughout the entire flooding area, the territory is being cleaned up, and the process of restoring the roadway and social infrastructure facilities — clinics, kindergartens, schools. There is very little time left for rebuilding and repairing such facilities: we all know: the summer in Siberia is short, and we must put as much effort as possible to begin the restoration work as soon as possible. The National Association of Timber Industry «Russian Forest» takes an active part in this work. Today we delivered lumber for help centers for children in the cities of Nizhneudinsk and Tulun. We hope that having all that is required, they will quickly repair their infrastructure», — Margarita Lee, vice-president of the association, said.


Flooding in the Irkutsk region began in late June. In 107 settlements more than 10 thousand houses, as well as 49 socially significant objects were flooded. In total, about 40 thousand people were affected by the flood. The region has an emergency mode.
