Donate money. The RRC has opened an account to collect donations. An expenditure report will be published on their website every month. Over 27 million roubles have already been raised. This money will be spent on the arrangement of playrooms in temporary accommodation, the purchase of children’s pushchairs, air circulators, and vouchers to pharmacies and supermarkets.
