CF "Pomogaem"Дніпропетровськ, вул. Красна, 3а
CF "Pomogaem" was founded in 2009 by volunteers who worked in the children's hospitals, helped seriously ill children, and foster parents who took care of orphans. This determined the main areas for charity of the Fund.
Nowadays, the Foundation implements charity in three areas: Health, Family and Accessability.

"I have already participated in the UBB fundraising marathon, having successfully raised funds for children with Down syndrome. This fall, I'm running so that my friend's mom can beat cancer. When our children are born, we see a new parent-child relationship and begin to appreciate in a new way the only person to whom we can come up with the request “to take on our hands”. Mother is the only support of my friend Maria.

"As a nutritionist, I fully understand how important sport is for health, I realize that this is the most important prevention of many diseases. And yet I have a deeply personal relationship with me: I just get a lot of pleasure from it and I get charged with energy. I urge you, together with me, to strive for a noble goal: to raise funds for gifts to orphans from foster families and family-type children's homes.

My name is Ekaterina Gavrilenko, I'm an employee of the CF "Pomogaem" and in the race almost a rookie. I was led to a charitable action by our foundation, and when it was over, I did not quit my morning jogs – so my work and life are closely intertwined with me. Now I'm running so that the smiles on the faces of children from the oncology department of the Dnieper appear more often!

"I was running when I was a kid, and it's not going to be easy for me to pass the distance. But I want to do everything possible so that smiles on the faces of children from the oncology department appear more often!
It is a long way that Dasha Kondyuk has overcome with us – in the struggle for her health, calmness, and confidence. Slowly and gradually, the procedures of laser therapy that we and you paid together erased purple spot from Dasha's face – vascular malformation, which progressed before the treatment began, threatened with heavy bleeding and the possible development of oncology. Dasha has almost reached the goal, 9 courses are passed, 4 are left. The nearest course takes place in the summer and costs 38,950 UAH.
Again our unique Misha needs help. He is unique not only for his rare disease, but also for the amazing strength of spirit and the ability to enjoy life in spite of difficulties. There are a lot of difficulties: edema, pain, long healings on the legs, bleeding right through the pores on the skin. These are just symptoms, and there are a number of really serious threats. To remove for the near future from the boy the risk of embolism, a stroke, a heart attack, in the summer he needs to undergo an operation in a German clinic.

"We love sports and participated in volunteer activities for ATU fighters, but we did not have to unite sport and charity. And the idea is magnificent! In this half marathon we support Sonya, who needs earphones and supplies. It is unfair that someone is born with fewer opportunities than others. We want Sonechka to hear and do everything possible for this!
