‘Kherson region, as one of the regions where Smart-Holding's businesses are present, has always been the focus of our charity efforts. Earlier, the Foundation delivered lung ventilators, PCR tests and protection gear to medical staff of the region’s healthcare facilities. Today, all this equipment saves lives of local residents and protects doctors. In recent days, the epidemiological situation in the region looked quite encouraging, yet, doctors should be prepared for possible new challenges,’ said Dmitriy Krasnikov, the CEO of Smart Maritime Group, which is part of Smart-Holding.
