A session of Humanitarian commission was held in Tskhinval. The Commission has been established to the Ministry of Health and Social Development to provide assistance to population affected by the Georgian aggression in August 2008.
The Health Minister tourched upon the issue of distribution of humanitarian assistance delivered to SO.
"We have no problems with distribution of humanitarian assistance. All what is received and distributed is recorded. We have clearly identified the categories of inhabitants who are eligible to receive humanitarian assistance (those with burnt houses, large families with many children, those families which lost their bread-winner, disabled persons). This category covers about 9,996 persons. It is impossible to provide assistance to the whole population of South Ossetia", he stressed.
Nugzar Gabaraev had also added that there were positive development in this sphere.
"Soon, Norwegian Refugee Council will arrive in South Ossetia to provide humanitarian assistance. Thanks to them, we will be able to carry out rehabilitation among population in rural areas of South Ossetia. South Ossetia is not only the city of Tskhinval. They will be visiting villages and thus, identify what is necessary to do there to improve the situation. They also have programs on rehabilitation of industries in the republic", concluded Gabaraev.
