Due to the active hostilities on the territory of Zaporizhia region, the city's health care institutions provide round-the-clock multidisciplinary, specialized, emergency and urgent medical care to servicemen, wounded, internally displaced persons, as well as the population of the city and region. Doctors are often faced with the need to treat gunshot wounds.
The executive committee of the city council of Zaporizhia appealed to Vadym Novynskyi Foundation with a request for external fixation devices as charitable aid.
"Currently, surgeons often and effectively use external fixation devices in their work. 30-40% of the wounded require them. They should always be in the reserve of the city's health care facilities," said Anatoliy Kurtev, secretary of Zaporizhia City Council.
Vadym Novynskyi Foundation purchased devices of various sizes for the amount of UAH 15.1 million and handed them over to the city's hospitals.
"We express our gratitude to Vadym Novynskyi for the provided disinterested help. He perfectly understands all the complexity and danger of the situation in the city due to martial law. This is not the first time when the businesses of Smart Holding group and his Foundation help Zaporizhzhia, the residents of the city and the region," said Anatoliy Kurtev.
