Even during the pandemic, Darnitsa continues to support charitable projects – Shymkiv
The chairman of the board of directors of Darnitsa Group Dmytro Shymkiv said that in 2020 the Darnitsa company allocated more than UAH 14 million to help doctors and patients, and also to support the culture and education sector in Ukraine. The press center of the pharmaceutical concern said this with reference to a source.
According to the top manager, the last year has tested the business to check how strong it is and how sincere the intentions are to support public initiatives and positive transformations. The Darnitsa company passed this test successfully, since the management of the concern had long ago understood that qualitative development is possible mainly due to systemic changes.
Darnitsa Group has been involved in charitable activities for years, and only in the period from 2018 to 2020, inclusive, has designated 50.3 million hryvnias for these purposes. Dmytro Shymkiv is convinced that supporting healthcare, culture and education is a strategic priority of the pharmaceutical concern. In the last year, one more priority was added to the area of patronage – overcoming the consequences of the pandemic.
Thus, the pharmaceutical company Darnitsa donated 6 ventilators and equipment for diagnosing patients with Covid-19 coronavirus to medical institutions during the year. With the assistance of the pharmaceutical concern, a series of online conferences was held. Domestic and foreign doctors took part in it. They shared their experience of treating patients in a pandemic. Also, as a charitable aid, “Darnitsa” sent drugs to medical institutions that treat children with chronic systemic dysfunctions of connective tissues.
Supporting cultural, educational and social initiatives, Darnitsa founded a scholarship program at the Ukrainian Catholic University, organized and paid for drainage of the walls and foundations of St. Sophia Cathedral in Kyiv and provided medicinal kits to flood victims in the Carpathian region and large families with foster children. In addition, speaking of charitable activities, Dmytro Shymkiv mentioned the fundraising campaign for the “Zhyttyelyub” fund. It was conducted during two months at the end of the last year and helped to collect 200 thousand hryvnias. Darnitsa doubled this amount and donated it to the fund to purchase food kits and medicines for its care recipients.
