At the beginning of the year, the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan launched the charity event “Caravan of Mercy” for 2019, aimed at supporting socially vulnerable groups of the population.
This year, the “Caravan of Mercy” will be held under the single slogan “Meirimd?l?kpen birlikke!”. As the Deputy Chairman of the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan Leonid Prokopenko noted, every month the action will be devoted to a certain topic. For example, January will be held under the slogan “Sarkyt”, February – “Sybaga”, March – “Shashu”, April – “Asar”, etc.
Every month passes under the sign of a certain Kazakh folk custom dedicated to charity. For example, in January there was a charity event “Sarkyt”. This is a well-established tradition of our people – a sign of respect to everyone who comes to visit, a sign of gratitude. To give a close Sarkyt is to share with him joy and happiness, to share warmth and care.
On Thanksgiving Day in the capital House of Friendship and throughout the country, actions will be organized in all regional branches of the Assembly to support socially vulnerable categories of citizens.
Last year, as part of the Caravan of Mercy, 17,173 charity events were held, more than 449,000 people received assistance.
The badge of the ANK “Zhomart Zhan”, specially established by decision of the Assembly Council, was awarded to 78 patrons of arts.
In the framework of the charity event, representatives of the older generation of metropolitan ethnocultural associations are conducting national ceremonies “Besik toy” and “T?sau kesu” for children from “Mama’s House” in Astana.
During the rally, activists of the Republican youth movement of the ANK “Zhanyru Zholy” will deliver gift packages to the needy, including large and low-income families.
