We have 200 volunteers working with us all over Ukraine during these four months. They continuously collect the needs from hospitals, help to purchase, distribute and deliver PPE. We highly appreciate their energy, tirelessness and kindness. Our volunteers are our super force and without them we would not have achieved such impressive results. Special thanks to the party Golos for their help in creating a wide network of volunteers.

UAH 20 million for four months is a great result and at the same time a great responsibility. All assistance received is directed exclusively to procurement and delivery of PPE and medical equipment to rescue doctors and patients with COVID-20.

We continue to receive more help from various companies. We accept help only for saving doctors and people. Unfortunately, our country is in a situation where volunteers have to provide a reliable rear for health workers. We receive assistance for doctors and people, but that does not mean that we support or promote position or interests of the involved companies.

We are grateful to all who support and trust us. Your words of support and gratitude, your likes and reposts are important to us.

Despite general fatigue and easing of quarantine requirements, the number of patients with COVID-19 is increasing every day. We continue our activities and protect Ukrainian doctors.
