"Every year a certain group of people receive help. I communicate with repatriates every day and I know who face certain problems. This year, a family from a village will receive assistance. The money will be spent on papers for citizenship and repair work in their house. If some funds remain, we will also help other repatriates," said Ratmir Karov.
