Stage 22 of a charity campaign, which was organized by the Ministry of Finance, to help soldiers in the ATO zone , has finished. Anyone who was interested had the opportunity to support our soldiers. The aid went to those who were on the front lines or wounded soldiers that are now being treated at the hospital of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine.
During May $ 4,4 thousand were collected. $ 2 thousand were left over from the previous part of the campaign. Interestingly, $ 1 500 were donated by absolutely unknown people, who live in London and learned about the campaign via the Internet.
Collected funds were sent to treat a 20-year-old officer-hero, who saved 15 soldiers’ lives and is now at the Odessa hospital of the Ministry of Defence. The rest of money was used to buy an automobile and fuel for the battalion of 54th separate mechanized division.
Campaign coordinators announced that, unfortunately, the sum needed to buy one more automobile, which was promised to our soldiers in Novograd-Volynsky of Zhytomyr oblast, has not been collected yet. The organizers of the campaign invite everyone who wishes to help to join the search for a VAZ “Nyva” 4 х 4, UАZ-469 or four-wheeldrive pickup (possibly with transit numbers) for our Ukrainian soldiers.
During the time of the campaign, over $ 175 thousands were collected. Also, alimentary products and domestic products, worth several thousands hryvnias, were gathered along with patriotic souvenirs, holiday greetings, and childrens’ drawings.
“The defenders feel our support. That helps them stand against the enemy and inspires courage. We are grateful to all the participants of this campaign. Each contribution to the cause, gives strength and brings wishes for continued success,” Mykhailo Tevkun, the Coordinator of the campaign, ensured.
