People throughout the country unite to help flood victims, Russian celebrities and prominent philanthropists among them.

      No one has been left indifferent to the destructive flood in Russia’s southern Krasnodar region, which claimed lives of over 170 people. Hundreds of volunteers across Russia have united in a huge team, coordinating their efforts through social networks – Facebook, Vkontakte (a Russian-based social network resembling Facebook), Twitter and LiveJournal.

      Convoys of private cars and trucks with drinking water, foodstuffs, clothing and household appliances are heading for Kuban from different Russian cities and even other countries. The Russian Post Service charges no fee for those who send parcles or money to flood survivors.

      Almost every Russian city has several points for bringing humanitarian aid. At least 30 official aid collecting stations have been launched in Moscow. The biggest of them is the station near the Moscow State University building at Vorobyovy Gory, not far from the capital's center. People come there with food and clothes for flood victims. It is possible to be registered there as a volunteer and be sent to Krasnodar region, as flooded areas badly need help for cleaning, sorting and administrative work. 

      Russian super-model and a head of "Naked Hearts" charitable foundation, Natalya Vodianova, has announced her joining the volunteers movement. She plans pay the plane tickets of all psychologists who are prepared to work in the region’s Krymsk district, which was the hardest hit by the flood. Vodianova will also send some of humanitarian aid at her own expense.

      According to the latest information, 172 people died in the floods, while 34,500 others were injured. More than 640 homes have been destroyed. Several Kuban regions still suffer from the lack of power, water, electricity and gas supply.
