NLMK Long allocates over 17 million roubles to support its veterans
Companies within NLMK Group's Long Products Division have provided financial assistance to veterans in honour of the Day of the elderly person listed and organized for their celebrations.
NLMK Ural, NLMK Metalware and NLMK Ural's Vtorchermet congratulated veterans. In addition to financial assistance in the total amount of about 1.5 million roubles the retired former honoured employees of steelmaking facilities could enjoy a number of festive events like a buffet, a visit to a theatre or to concerts. Veterans also met with Eurogymnasium students in Revda; they talked to the children and took part in a festive tea party.
The Division companies annually allocate funds to help veterans. These funds are used to finance health resort treatment, provide financial support, pay for medical treatment, organize entertainment events and memorial evenings. The companies spent around 17 million roubles on this cause in 2016.
There is also a Veterans Council, which promotes the interests of the honoured retired employees of the companies. Currently the Council has over 3 thousand members.
