The action "EU solidarity with Russian civil society: assistance to elderly people and adults with disabilities" was launched in 2020 by the European Union and implemented by Charitable Foundation for Philanthropy Development CAF Russia. The action aimed to provide help for elderly people and adults with disabilities in Russia to cope the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and its implications. Apart from the EU, the key donor of the action, individual contributions were made by Belgium, Estonia, France, Italy, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.
To ensure a swift response to emerging needs, CAF Russia conducted 6 rounds of grant competition channelling the funds to CSOs that work with the elderly people and adults with disabilities across Russia.
