On 2 May 2020, one of the Sardobinsky dams broke through reservoirs in western Uzbekistan. As a result of the breakthrough, severe flooding impacted several villages in Kazakhstan’s Turkestan region, causing more than 31 thousand people from 14 populated areas to be evacuated. Many houses were destroyed, and hundreds of families were left homeless.
In the first days after the flood, more than 4,500 residents from the Zhenis, Zhana Turmys, Nurly Zhol, Dostyk, Ferdowsi, and Orgebas villages, who were caught in the disaster zone, immediately received free communication and Internet from Beeline. Later, it was then decided to allocate money for constructing houses through the charity foundation Birgemiz. Total, and since April to November 2020, Beeline Kazakhstan allocated 822 million tenge for the construction of victims’ houses.
On 19 October 2020, keys for the newly built Beeline houses were handed over to 20 families. Thanks to Beeline, another 30 families will soon receive keys to their new homes.
In general, for those affected by the floods in the Myrzakent, Turkestan region, over 400 houses were built in the village. For residents of the Dostyk settlements, Zhanaturmys and Zhenis who lost their houses, Beeline provided 100 sq. m, three-room houses. All communications have been connected to a new microdistrict, and construction of a kindergarten and school has begun.Related Topics
