Until recently, a resident of the Issyk-Kul region, Hadicha Urukova, had no idea of where her father, Uruk Kydyev, who was missing during the II World War, buried. Hadicha's grandmother did not know anything about the her father: she was still a child, when he went to the front, she remembered father only from her mother's stories. In January 2017, after unsuccessful attempts to find any information, Hadicha applied to the Red Crescent Society of Kyrgyzstan.
Red Crescent staff immediately went for the cause: requests were made to the archives, authorities. It turned out that her father was a junior lieutenant, commander of a small infantry platoon and died on October 3, 1942 in Voronezh. It became known that the burial place of the warrior is in the grave of Soviet soldiers in Voronezh.
The Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan also helped Hadicha Urukova to perpetuate the name of the warrior who died in the war, now a street named after Uruk Kydiyev has appeared on Issyk-Kul region.
Today, on May 22, a ceremony was held to commemorate a veteran, Lieutenant Uruk Kydiyev. To pay tribute came relatives, representatives of local authorities.
In the very near future, the Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan will also help Grandmother Hadicha to visit the grave of his father in Voronezh. Unfortunately, the family does not have any information about the service of U. Kydiyev, so Hadicha Urukova associates all hopes with the future trip.
The Kyrgyz Red Crescent Tracing Service has been helping to find relatives and reunite family ties for 15 years already.
The Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan also helps to reunite families, helps many people return to their homeland, pays for travel expenses.
