Newspapers subscription fees covered for Balakliiskyi district veterans
Veterans at the State Enterprise "Balakliiskyi remontnyi zavod" (Balakliiskyi repair plant) will receive free fresh press for the entirety of the next year. Newspapers subscription fees for the pensioners were covered by The Charitable Foundation of Social Development of Kharkiv Region.
Among those who will be receiving the periodicals are children of war, people with disabilities, veterans of war and labor. At their request, the Foundation has paid subscription fees for 30 copies of the district newspaper "Visty Balakliishchyny" (Balakliiskyi News) and 12 copies of the regional newspaper "Slovo veterana" (Word of Veteran) for 2018.
"It is not fair that people who have decades of diligent work under their belts cannot afford their favorite publications. Moreover, for the majority of them, a newspaper is the only source of information about the life of the district and the region. Paying periodicals’ subscription fees is the least the Foundation can do for our pensioners and veterans," says Yurii Tkach, the Foundation's coordinator in Balakliiskyi district.
