"We need help so that we could free our patients..." says the director of the Volynsky Regional Hospice, in his letter to us. This hospice treats 180 seriously ill adults a year. Adults are all patients over 18 years of age. Some have incurable cancer. Some had a heart attack, others have heart failure or severe pulmonary failure. All these patients become very short of breath. At this time, the hospice only has two oxygen concentrators per 25 beds. People breathe "by the hour" – they have to wait for their turn, and then they have to give the concentrator to the next person in line and return to the hell of slow suffocation. We can fix this situation and free those patients of their suffering if we buy four more oxygen concentrators.

Twins Julia and Inna are seventeen years old already. They live in the Rivne region in the loving large family. What is so unusual – you ask? In the photo, you can see the smiling young faces. But the picture of Yulechka’s spine – it’s just the misery... The disaster has begun exactly seventeen years ago. The girls were born prematurely and spent two months in intensive care after their birth. When the babies were already at home, both the local doctor and the children's nurse, who came home to examine the children, convinced their parents that everything was fine, the children were developing normally. And the only mother's heart suggested that it was not right. Parents sounded the alarm.
We need help from you, the boy Lev, who has congenital heart disease. Leo was born with a defect in the atrial septum and now there is a hole in his heart that prevents the child from living. This heart defect must be urgently corrected and this can be done with the help of an implant (occluder), which will be installed directly in the heart. The operation at the Amosov Institute will be done for free, but you need to purchase the implant itself, for which parents simply do not have the means. Help Lev be healthy! Support the project!
Our girl Angelina, who has congenital heart disease, is waiting for our help. Angelina was born a healthy girl, but after another examination in the hospital, she discovered an open arterial duct and now she urgently needs an operation to eliminate heart disease. The operation with the help of a heart implant is free of charge at the Amosov Institute, but you need to purchase the implant itself, for which parents simply do not have the means. Help Angelina be healthy! Support the project!

The child is a pupil of the 5th form of Klekotyna secondary school (Shargorod, Vinnytsia region). She receives her education at home; her teachers walk 6 km on the way to her every day. She waits for them so happily, her deep grey eyes sparkle. Olia appreciates her teachers’ coming; she’s very diligent and makes every effort in order to learn our world through investigating different sciences. Unfortunately, this girl suffers from speech retardation. That’s why she speaks her own particular language which mostly everyone understands.
Vasia is 11 years old, and his dream is not a new smartphone but a pair of sneakers. Yes, just ordinary sneakers instead of orthopedic shoes that make his feet bleed. The difference between Vasia’s legs is almost 11 centimeters. That’s how much the guy "outgrew" a domestically produced endoprosthesis that he was installed in 2014. During this time, Vasia had a lot to go through: the first treatment at the Pediatric Department of the National Cancer Institute, going back to the hospital with a recurrence, surgeries for the removal of lung metastases, treatment in Poland, extension of the prosthesis. All this has produced results: oncology is defeated.

Like every child is better for his parents, he is special to us, he is our universe".
