Charity in the Far East is difficult, expensive, often ineffective, but there are more points for applying efforts here than in other areas of the country. First of all, in the Far Eastern Federal District it is necessary to render "first aid", carry out supporting activities, Which will cover the needs of the simplest things, and will also allow bringing social institutions into compliance with the requirements of the law. For example, the fund "Petropavlovsk" is guided by the project approach, but in the structure of costs, many articles aimed at patching holes. It can be the acquisition of desks in classes, the purchase of paint cans for the playground, the replacement of curtains and lamps in schools or chairs in the rural House of Culture. And than the settlements further from the center, the more serious the support is required. Only then it is appropriate to take up projects aimed at development.
The improvement of the social sphere of the region is complicated by the territorial remoteness and dispersion between the administrative centers and regional settlements, as well as by the peculiarities of the transport infrastructure. For example, the distance from Blagoveshchensk to the most northeastern point of the Amur Region - the village of Zlatoustovsk - is almost 800 km - this is more than the distance from Moscow to St. Petersburg, passing through four regions of Central Russia. Travel time by car takes approximately 15-16 hours. Such distance greatly increases the cost of delivery to the areas of the necessary inventory, materials, equipment, which are transferred by the benefactor to various institutions. Moreover, due to the specifics of the transport infrastructure of individual villages of the Amur Region, delivery is sometimes carried out in several stages, which implies the organization of several types of transport at once - for example, rail, road, air. In a number of regions, there are predominantly unpaved roads, there are no permanent bridges over heavily flowing rivers, which cuts off settlements from the “world” for several months a year. In such circumstances, the delivery process requires clear planning, coordination and control, so that, for example, expensive medical equipment is safe and sound to the beneficiary. Therefore, in parallel with the shipment of goods to charitable organizations have to deal with logistics.
Charity in the Far East is specific. It requires large investments, organizational efforts, greater versatility in work, and the results of work are sometimes visible only to individual residents of empty northern villages: parents who now take their children to a renovated kindergarten; retirees who no longer need to go to a medical specialist for an examination for 100 km; to few Evenki communities. Charitable activities in the FEFD require special will. Will to look wider and see the real social needs of the region. Let some of them seem simple and insignificant. But they are. And without their decision to go no further.
