The company also regularly supports the Ust-Nera Orphanage and the Khomenko School in Ust-Nera.

This particular format of municipal-private partnerships provides us with effective tools to address the needs of the local communities. Development of social infrastructure is a priority of our Resources for Good programme in Yakutia given the regional specifics,” said GPM President Roman Khudoliy.
