The Swiss Red Cross finances humanitarian assistance for lonely elderly people and persons with disabilities, single-parent and large families in Belarus. Parcels with food, baby food and toys, clothes, shoes, and stationery arrive from Switzerland every year and are distributed among those in need.
Also, the Swiss Red Cross finances the purchase of food for persons in need in Belarus. The recipients of parcels selected by the territorial centers of social services are provided with basic nutrition for three months.
Another area of humanitarian assistance is providing hot meals to homeless persons.
