In life, there are times when we need help, when we run out of our own funds and money borrowed from friends, and when we do not know what other effort to make to find a qualified professional, to cure, to get cured, and sometimes - to survive.
"Help here and now" that is how we can characterize our direction "Targeted Assistance" in short, which focuses on a particular person, his or her problem and fate. This is where, perhaps, the activity of many private charity providers begins.
This is exactly the way how the founder of the Foundation started his private charitable activity: from the letters for help, which came to Rinat Akhmetov. Every year there were more such letters, and the requests became more major - people asked for help in treatment or in emergencies and tragic situations. There are two reasons for that: deterioration of health of Ukrainians, especially children, and social vulnerability.
We tried to eliminate the causes and not the consequence of social problems, so eventually our Foundation expanded its project activities, focusing on system addressing the epidemic of tuberculosis, outdated diagnosis and treatment of cancer and the search for families for orphans and children deprived of parental care. Nevertheless the Foundation hasn’t stopped helping people “here and now”.
We cannot help everybody, but we do our best to help where we can give a person a chance to get back to normal life.
