On July 4, 2017 employees of Kumtor Gold Company’s Marshalling Yard in Balykchy helped the private nursing home for the elderly “Nafile” within the framework of the corporate volunteering program “Kumtor Ambassadors”. The whole staff took part in raising money for the charity event. Kumtor employees organized a lunch for the seniors and presented them the much-needed water heater.
The nursing home “Nafile” was organized by private individuals; the care institution does not receive any government support, the institution administration has to ask for help from the private companies in Balykchy. As of today, about nine people aged between 70 and 85 constantly live in the nursing home. All of them, for various reasons, have been left without shelter and care, but owing to the kind-hearted Balykchy townsfolk, who organized “Nafile” nursing home, they have a roof over their heads and care.
The charitable event was attended by Jyldyz Raimkulova, Zahar Tsygankov, Ashyrbek Karagul uulu, Maksat Kadyralev, Alibek Kulataev, Katerina Kazemir, Asylkul Beysheeva.
