The goods were given to the Kyrgyz Red Crescent Society on the border for distribution.
According to various sources, as a result of ethnic clashes, which began in Osh in southern Kyrgyzstan on the night of June 11, 200 to 2,000 people were killed. Around 400,000 become refugees.
The Uzbek government constructed camps to house the refugees in the Ferghana, Namangan and Andijan regions. The refugees are provided with three-time hot meals per day and medical care.
