On Sunday, July 8 second charity auction, provided by the "Nikopol kids” foundation, took place at the palace of solemn events. This case it was themed - lots were granted by the artist Vitaly Valsamaki and his followers.
By decision of the board of the foundation, all collected money will be allocated to Kirill Dron’ treatment. This boy has rare genetic disease - Hunter syndrome.
We know, that the money raised during the auction is not even enough for a month of treatment. But our task was to get things moving. Kirill’s mother – Oksana- was invited to the auction. She asked for a help with tears. Archpriest Vitaly Efremov (rector of the Mother of God Nativity Church) visited this auction too. He has spiritually and materially helped this family from the moment of Oksana and Andrew asked him. This event was blessed by Archpriest Igor Melnikov – he is the Rector of Holy Cross Church and a person who always rake part in our events.
The auction started and its director and presenter - Irina Lagutina, expertly served items one by one. Thus, 25 paintings and handmade doll Fyodor by Tatyana Rudenko were sold.
Total amount due – 23600UAH. People, who came to the auction, understood the purpose of the event. It caused the deepest respect.
We are pleased to note, that the rows of permanent contributors expand by serious businessmen, city deputies, serious business.
And best of all, our regular donator Кristof Reiva again gave for Nikopol kids a huge amount - 50,000UAH. It was the real shock for us! He did it quietly, without pomp, just sent his assistant Antonina. So, we could “close” all our urgent needs. Foundation board, parents of those children who have been helped, say thank you, Кristof! Dear friend of our children! We couldn’t cope without your help! It is very difficult to collect money on summer! But requires for assistance does not stop. And you gave us the opportunity to treat our children further. There are no words to express our gratitude, which overwhelm our hearts, of your noble deeds! To do them, person should be wise. About this wisdom we can read at the Gospel of Matthew: "Each other's burdens take, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ". It’s so difficult not to think about own problems, but to give all your soul, heart and life to the service of our neighbor.
With great pleasure I enumerate all, who helped in the preparation of auction:
And, of course, I’d like to say about the artist Vitaly Dmitrievich Valsamaki and his students - the young artists who provided their works for auction. Summary report is presented at the table. Other funds will be transferred to the foundation account and will be use strictly for its intended purpose - the treatment and rehabilitation of children with cancer diagnoses, serious health disorder, cerebral palsy, etc.
