About Responsible Citizens
"Responsible Citizens" started their activities as a self-organized informal group of volunteers on the 10th of June 2014.
In July 2015 our group was registered as official organization according to the Ukrainian legislation. We acknowledged providing of humanitarian support to people as our new profession.
We have stated that we are taking the responsibility for our neighbors from vulnerable categories of population. In that very moment functioning of state social institutions had collapsed. No one carried responsibility towards ordinary people unless we decided to do that. That was what made us move further and provided an idea how to name us – “Responsible Citizens”.
Non-governmental organization "Responsible Citizens" (RC) is a local humanitarian organization from Ukraine. We provide assistance to civilians in military conflict areas of Donbass region (Eastern part of Ukraine).
We accomplish our activities on the government-controlled areas (GCA) of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. All RC employees are residents of Donbass and Ukrainian citizens. We are all ordinary people who decided to help civilians to go through this difficult period and survive.
