The Techiia Foundation donated UAH 566,000 to support palliative patients in Kropyvnytskyi
Seriously ill and palliative patients of various ages in the regional hospital of Kropyvnytskyi have been receiving additional care for over a year through the "Support" project. It is implemented by the charitable fund "Angels of Life," with all expenses covered by the "Techiia Foundation."
The project started almost simultaneously with the full-scale russian invasion of Ukraine and has not stopped a single day because severe illnesses do not pause for war. Therefore, during 2022 and the first quarter of 2023, over 50 children and 30 adults, including those affected by the hostilities, received assistance. To meet their needs, the Techiia Foundation donated 566,000 UAH. The main expense category was specialized nutrition.
"For almost a year now, we have been providing specialized nutrition to the hospital. It helps restore and support the bodies of children who have weight deficiencies or severe allergies, which prevent them from consuming regular food. Burn unit patients who have been affected by the war also receive this nutrition," comments Natalia Tarabrina, the director of the "Angels of Life" foundation.
Additionally, within the framework of the "Support" project, patients at the hospital in Kropyvnytskyi receive specialized hygiene products such as absorbent diapers, adult diapers, and supplies for washing bedridden patients.
"Our project not only facilitates care but also improves the quality of life for these people, preventing the formation of painful bedsores. We were searching for support for this project for a long time, and we are sincerely grateful to the “Techiia Foundation” for their reliable support and assistance," adds Natalia Tarabrina.
As a reminder, the “Techiia Foundation” has been supporting the regional clinical hospital in Kropyvnytskyi since 2019. During this time, the organization has helped upgrade the equipment in the surgical and hematology departments and, together with the “Stary Lev Publishing House,” adorned the hospital corridors with fairy-tale cats.
