August is a special month for Ukraine. On 24 August 2022, we celebrated the 31st anniversary of our independence. 24 August 2022 marked six months of heroic resistance by the Ukrainian people to the russian military invasion. Six months of continuous support by the “Breathe” Charity Fund of the hospitals and civilian population of Ukraine affected by the war.
Last month, we delivered necessary medicines to our permanent partner – the National Cancer Institute. Additionally, we received 30,000 disinfectant wipes for various purposes, a batch of medical gowns and eyepieces, as well as pulse oximeters from our foreign partners.
The Fund began to receive the first applications for covering part of the rent for the state property tenants, which support the country as it defends itself from the russian invasion. We would like to remind you that during martial law, the Fund launched a grant programme to provide rental support and partially cover payments for the state property tenants. The programme was the result of the exchange of official letters between the Fund and the State Property Fund of Ukraine and is implemented thanks to financial support from our country’s caring friends from the United States of America. More information can be found on the programme’s website.
We heartfully thank you for supporting those who are in the most need. We will continue to inform you about the distribution of aid obtained with your generous assistance. Donations can be made via the Fund’s website: https://dyhai.org/en.html
