Imams-chaplains brought clothes collected by Lviv residents to the homeless of Severodonetsk - фото 1
During another business trip to the JFO zone, imams-chaplains of the Department of Military Chaplaincy of Muslims of Ukraine visited the Islamic Cultural Center "Bismillah" in the frontline city of Severodonetsk.

This is reported by Islam in Ukraine.

Together with the imam of the local mosque Temur Beridze, also a chaplain, they took part in preparing lunch and feeding the most vulnerable citizens — people left homeless, lonely low-income pensioners, and so on. Imams-chaplains also handed over warm clothes for those in need, collected by Lviv volunteers.

According to the news of the Military Chaplaincy of Muslims of Ukraine on "Facebook", the tradition of weekly dinners for those in need was started by Imam Temur:

"Military chaplain Temur Beridze started this tradition in the local mosque, where he is for the imam and for a long time <...> does not leave people who find themselves in difficulties in the frontline city to their fate."

In addition to a hot lunch, the underprivileged received warm clothes. According to the imam, this became possible thanks to the efforts of Lviv activist Natalia Shuvarskaya, who, together with other volunteers, collected and transferred parcels to the east of Ukraine.

Temur Beridze thanks everyone who helped organize a lunch for those in need and encourages those who are not indifferent to donate money to good deeds:

"Thank you for your support to Brother Sherala and his staff from Uzbekistan, and to brother Tamir from Syria for his skillful hands and culinary skills. We continue to work for the good of society!"

It is not the first time that Lviv volunteers have helped the Severodonetsk ICC in charity work. So, warm clothes collected by volunteers of the "Medical Corps of Lviv Region" were distributed to homeless people here in February.
