Norwegian Red Cross

My name is Jasulan. I am from the Astana branch of the Red Crescent of Kazakhstan. I am 21 years old and I am vice president of the club of the Red Crescent Society at Nazarbayev University.

Within the fight with coronavirus, I am helping with forming product baskets and delivering them to the vulnerable population segments.

When I deliver baskets to people in need, what I see is usually a gloomy picture: old crumbling houses, wastes spread around, dirty roads, and bad lighting. Nevertheless, there is something, what stands out of the picture. It is people’s smiles and tears of happiness when they see the desired food baskets. They tell “thanks” by their looks, thank you for not forgetting about us.
