ICF “MANUS DEI” together with CF “Help Bank” donated a breathing resuscitator to the Vinnytsia Regional Perinatal Center

As part of the charity project “BDayVyklyk: First Breath”, initiated by Ekaterina Sadova with the support of the Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace, the Vinnytsia perinatal center received a breathing resuscitator “NeoPuff TM RD-900”. Today, equipment, which is vital for premature babies, worth 125,000 hryvnias, was transferred to the center.

Thanks to NeoPuff, premature babies will receive the necessary respiratory support directly in the delivery room, immediately after childbirth. This progressive method has been successfully used for a long time in other countries – now doctors of perinatal centers use it in Ukraine and save tiny lives.

Chairman of ICF “MANUS DEI” Andrey Dotsenko noted:
“I am proud that our charitable foundation has joined the good cause, now there is a NeoPuff apparatus in Vinnitsa – but we cannot stop there. Because, as statistics show, every twentieth child in Ukraine is born prematurely, and this is more than 22 thousand premature babies annually.

I am sure that thanks to the initiative of Ekaterina Sadova, UBB, Ukrainian foundations and a huge number of caring people, this progressive medical technology will spread to many maternity hospitals and will give a chance for life and full development to children who have recently been doomed.

Only by uniting, we will complete the project thanks to which the children will live – and we will change the statistics!

It is also planned to install them in the Dnipro, Zaporozhye, Kiev, Poltava, Rovno, Sumy, Khmelnitsky and Cherkassy.
