1 000 000 UAH for charity: Volodymyr Avramenko handed over the long-awaited equipment to the National cancer Institute

23 January 2020

At the end of last year, Volodymyr Avramenko, the founder of the AVK company, made a charitable contribution of 1,000,000 UAH to purchase medical equipment for the National Cancer Institute. On January 22, the businessman personally handed over a multifunctional medical device to the Department of Pediatric Oncology.

Every year, more than 300 children from all over Ukraine are treated here. The Department has been waiting for the blood transfusion equipment: the AMICUS blood cell separator for a long time. According to the head doctor of the institution, thanks to the new equipment, hundreds of young Ukrainians will get a chance to recover.

The device will be used for intensive chemotherapy regimens within maintenance therapy. It will also provide children with donor platelets during the period of oppression of hematopoiesis. In addition, the equipment will allow provision of hematopoietic stem cells for high-dose chemotherapy with transplantation.

"According to the Ministry of Health, there are about one million people with cancer. Every year, 90 thousand Ukrainians die from this disease. The numbers shock leaving no one indifferent. At the end of last year, I allocated 1,000,000 UAH for the purchase of a multifunctional device, and today I've handed it over to the Department of Pediatric Oncology. Hopefully, these numbers will get lower" - said Volodymyr Avramenko on his Facebook page.

The statistics is really striking, since Ukraine is the second in Europe in terms of the spread of cancer. This is a problem that one cannot ignore. We believe that the purchased device will save thousands of lives, and this case will serve as a worthy example to follow.
