The forced shutdown of the enterprise did not affect its charitable activities.
Since the beginning of the RF’s full-scale invasion in Ukraine, about one thousand of internally displaced citizens, including more than 200 children, found their shelter in the settlement of Pobuzke. Both the community and Pobuzky Ferronickel Plant, which is a city-forming enterprise, started taking care of their fellow citizens who were forced to leave their place of residence because of the war activities. During the most difficult times, the plant took its best efforts to provide the displaced people with both the medications and the food; also, they help in resolving household problems. In particular, this involves the traffic to deliver humanitarian aid. The protection services are not limited with the community’s territory only but they also cover Mykolaiv, Odesa, Kherson, Donetsk, Zhytomyr and Kyiv regions. About UAH 200 mln. were allocated for these purposes.
The community itself does everything to ensure decent conditions to accommodate internally displaced persons. Besides, generators and coolers to the amount of about UAH 100 ths. have been purchased and installed.
Besides, those wishing to, who have a required experience were employed at the plant.

That is why we keep fulfilling our voluntary social obligations despite all difficulties”.
