ICRC doles heating aids in Donetsk, E. Ukraine

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is doling wood packs among residents in war-affected eastern Ukraine to help them withstand winter cold.

The ICRC has provided about 132 tons of wood briquettes to a village in Donetsk region with each family given 2 tons.

The ICRC has been working in eastern Ukraine to help people affected by conflicts.

At the beginning of the year, the committee announced that it planned to step up humanitarian operations in Ukraine in 2016.

The conflict between government troops and pro-independence insurgents has continued for nearly two years, leaving many residents of the region in need of humanitarian aids.
