More than 8 million hryvnias have been raised to protect doctors from the coronavirus — CF “Patients of Ukraine”

Charitable Foundation “Patients of Ukraine” together with partners, donors, volunteers, and people raised 8,185,235 hryvnias to protect doctors from the coronavirus.

CF “Patients of Ukraine” received charitable contributions from:

  • 21 donors who donated and/or raised funds in the amount of UAH 7,571,741;
  • 1,133 people through the site in the amount of UAH 613,494.

With the funds raised, we purchase personal protective equipment (PPE), which is necessary for physicians in the fight against coronavirus. First of all we procure masks/respirators, goggles, or face shields. This equipment protects the airways of our doctors and medical staff. The greatest risk of transmission of coronavirus occurs when it gets on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract or eyes. We also procure protective suits, boot covers, and gloves.
