On May 15, the President of Uzbekistan met with local residents in the Sardoba district.
“Each of the more than 4,500 flood-affected families is receiving material assistance in the amount of 40 million soums from the President of Uzbekistan, as well as such gifts as TV sets, refrigerators, washing machines, mini-ovens, electric kettles and irons,” the presidential press service said.
