More Than 10,000 Hygiene Kits Donated to Settlements by Vadym Novynskyi

More citizens living on Ukraine’s front lines have received another delivery of assistance from the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation as more than 10,000 hygiene products were distributed in late March. These products have been provided to residents currently living in extremely difficult conditions under the looming threat of shelling by Russian forces, often without access to clean water or electricity.

Kherson, for example, has been under attack by Russia since last year when the Russian Federation launched its invasion. Kherson, which had a population of more than 330,000 before the war, has been shelled regularly by Russian forces positioned across the Dnipro River. 

“Every day, many representatives of military units, public organizations, and charitable foundations contact us with a request to help with food, hygiene products, generators, etc. This time, we are handing over 5,000 sanitizers and over 5,000 packs of wet wipes to a partner charitable volunteer organization,” says Iryna Danko, a manager who works for the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation.

The hygiene products were distributed in collaboration with another charity, Unity of the World, a spokesperson for which said, “Thank you to the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation for such a great opportunity to help our people in front-line settlements. This is not the first time we have received such necessary products; our wards will also be grateful to you for this help.”

Hygiene Products for Hospitals

Late last year, the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation donated a large consignment of sanitizers and antibacterial wet wipes to the Heart Institute of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, a state institution that’s the country’s leading cardiological clinic. According to the charitable foundation, the total weight of this particular consignment exceeded 6 tons.

“We were brought a huge amount of humanitarian aid — bactericidal wipes and hand sanitizers. I would like to say a big thank you to the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation, which has been helping us by providing medicines and consumables for 10 months. This is very important for us,” said Borys Mikhailovich Todurov, director general of the institution.

The Heart Institute specializes in highly complex operations including transplants and other cardiac surgical procedures. In these times of war, the institute plays a critical role in saving the lives of many of the country’s defenders. “Now we have a lot of wounded soldiers, so I would like to emphasize once again that this is much-needed help right now,” said another official involved in the delivery of the consignment.

Ambulances for Military Units and Clinics

The foundation is also working in partnership with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to conduct one of the most significant aid projects ever seen in Ukraine, delivering ambulances, medical equipment, and specialized medical transport to front lines and embattled health care institutions such as hospitals and clinics. Between April and October 2022, more than 100 ambulances were donated to various facilities located throughout the country, with 900 million hryvnia (approximately $24 million) allocated by Vadym Novynskyi to finance the initiative. 

The foundation has also donated medical diagnostics equipment, including a second mobile X-ray machine for the M. Amosov National Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery following the successful delivery and installation of the first machine, which has been operating in the intensive care unit of the clinic for several months.

“Today, many people are in dire need of food and hygiene products. That is why we are constantly expanding the amount of aid to those who survive under shelling every day,” said a press release published on the Novynskyi Foundation website in October. “On the instructions of Vadym Novynskyi, our humanitarian aid headquarters is forming 5 tons of food kits and 500 kits of hygiene products every day.” 

The foundation plans to continue to provide assistance to medical institutions in Ukraine through various projects and initiatives for the foreseeable future while the war in Ukraine rages on.
