Charity Foundation "Nikopol Kids" finally has the permanent residence at the address: Electrometallurg str., 21, room 73.
For more than two years long, Charity Foundation "Nikopol Kids" has been keeping it’s work by information distribution about problems in cancer diagnosed children treatment, has been raising funds to the foundation boxes, has been purchasing medicaments; has been contacting with hundreds of parents, volunteers; has been posting information on web-site and social nets.
All these deals rested on the shoulders of our assistants, who joined us for different reasons. Some of them came at the behest of their hearts, the others were actuated by personal tragedy, others wanted not to date a computer, but to do something helpful.
Actually, we had no place for meetings, for action and events preparations, for charitable aid storing, and it really limited the foundation potentialities.
Somehow, comprehension came to us to reach a new level of our activity and to get the placement, where everyone can share sorrows, can offer helpful hand, just can talk.
Because of foundation purpose is its operating expenses minimization, but costs for our ward help maximization, we selected unpretentious placement at city printing center. Our foundation’s address is Electrometallurg str., 21, room 73. Reception days are: Monday to Thursday, from 9.00 to 16.00.Tel: +38 050 255-20-11 and +38 066 373-31-14.
Most importantly is our foundation work would have been impossible without our old friend and helper - Кristof Reiva. Computers were donated him to our foundations and they have operated yet. Whole-heartedly we thank staff of the network of shops “Kazanova”, “Monte Cristo” café and Antonina Anatolieva Kozharskaya, Anna Alexandrovna Panebrattseva, Olga Denisenko, Vitaly Zaburdaeva personally for their direct participation in our activities.
Thank you, dear friends! Thanks to you, we do our best for not to refuse any person, who requested for our help.
