We are students of Kharkiv National University Nesterenko Arina and Filenko Oksana. Last year, as part of educational practice, we visited Otradne town, where we met with Alenka. We were very moved by her story and this year we decided to help her. Looking at her it is impossible to believe what difficulties she goes through every day. Autism is not our personal choice. It does not harm others.

The long-awaited baby has appeared in the family. Parents with great enthusiasm are making plans for the university's future of their son and dreaming of who their daughter would become when she grows up. But the obstacle to everything is a deafness diagnosis. How to live on? What should the child do to speak? Will he or she ever be able to speak? These and many other issues make parents very perplexed and confused. After completing the stage of hearing replacement, the family should pass to aural/oral rehabilitation – to teach the child to hear and speak. Only after a long rehabilitation process will the child be able to fully socialize and live a fully active life.
We have set up an ambitious goal – to create special intensive care rooms for mothers and newborn babies at the National Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery named after Amosov. Usually children are born in a maternity hospital. And there are those who were born at a cardiac hospital. They can be called lucky. A few years ago, they could never feel their mom's and dad's hugs, because their mothers had heart defects. Childbirth in such a situation is a great risk of losing not one but two lives.
I am a doctor, a mother of two children. Unfortunately, I've had my own experience of caring for a seriously ill person in my family and I know how difficult it is when a loved one cannot breathe and you can't do anything. I can do nothing for those who have already died, but in memory of them, I want to do something so that the others do not feel this helplessness. In the project, I am raising money to buy oxygen apparatuses. I wish there were many of them in stock of the fund. I want as many people as possible to know about the fund – and that everyone who is in need, could at any time seek help and get the apparatus without a queue. Because there should be no queue for the right to breathe.
Breathing is normal and it seems so easy... but there are those for whom it’s not available. These people can be near us. And there are many, thousands of them!
There are many diseases that result in lung damage and oxygen deficiency. Nobody counts such people, they ask to breathe at home or in the hospital. And it
can last for months and years. The respiratory apparatus is what gives them free-breathing and adds new strength to their lives. Such an apparatus can be installed at home by plugging it into an outlet, and it will filter oxygen straight from the outside and serve it into the damaged lungs.
I get used to asking for oxygen devices as presents for almost all my events and anniversaries. And now I’ll ask again. My foundation helps people who due to various serious illnesses, cannot breathe on their own, suffocate. In most cases (I'm not sure how many) these people's problems can no longer be cured. But some patients, using oxygen support, change their minds about dying and can live like with such support for years. Why not, after all? When suffocation backs down, the desire for life comes back.
Hi, my name is Natalia Senycia. I am the founder of NGO Guardianship of the Angels, in which we support the parents whose children left this world too early. We know that babies in a hurry are at the highest risk, and it is important that they receive proper medical care right away! By saving one child's life, we save the whole family! And there are about 20,000 such families in Ukraine every year. A large percentage of losses can be prevented by providing the healthcare facilities with the necessary equipment.
We are Olena and Ivan Kondratenko, practicing family practitioners of private practice. We know very well how difficult it is, even with extensive experience, knowledge and "golden hands", to equip the department with modern drugs and equipment. That is why our team organizes a fund-raising to save hearts of children.
My name is Olga Novikova, I am a mother of two adult children and the owner of an adorable corgi and travel agent. My friends call me a "happiness provider" because I help them travel their dream places. Within the Generous Tuesday fundraising marathon I want to raise some money for rehabilitation equipment for the orphanage so that each one of the children have a dream trip when they grow up.
My name is Natalia Khazan, I am involved in filmmaking and civic activities. From childhood, I know clearly if you can help - it must be done. Let's help together with children with a sick heart right now.
In the city of Dnipro there is a children's department of cardiac surgery, where children receive help from the first day of their life.
The employees of the department, headed by the head Oleg Shashko, are professionals who know what to do. They have enough knowledge and skills, but they do not always have the necessary drugs and equipment. The state cannot yet provide 100% of any medical institution. Our goal is to collect part of the funds for the purchase of a reserve stock of the drug “Custodiol” and a multifunctional bed Eleganza 2.
Custodiol is a solution without which open heart surgery is not possible. One bottle of the drug - one childhood life. A multifunctional bed is needed for high-quality nursing of small patients in the resuscitation unit.
Our common goal - the modern department of salvation of hearts - is feasible!
