Vadym Novynskyi's International Charitable Foundation in Honour of Intercession of the Most Holy Mother of God (ICF) has become a partner of the charity project Help the Heart Beat implemented on the basis of the state institution Heart Centre of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

The project is about providing assistance in the treatment of children with congenital heart disease. Within the framework of the program, the ICF provides targeted support to orphaned children, as well as children from large, single-parent and socially unprotected families.

Since the beginning of the current year, the ICF has financed the purchase of implants for 4 small patients – children aged 3.5 to 11 years from Kiev, Kharkov and Rovno regions. All the children have been successfully operated on and discharged home.

In addition, as part of the program, the ICF purchased a bronchoscope for the Heart Centre’s intensive care unit for new-borns and premature babies. The equipment will be delivered from Germany to Ukraine at the end of May 2017.
