Cradles of Hope

In order to curb infant mortality in Ukraine, we develop a network of neonatal centers throughout the country, with state-of-the-art medical equipment and well-trained medical staff. Thirty five “Cradles of Hope” neonatal centres have been opened by early 2021.

We strive that not a single newborn has died in Ukraine because of lack of timely, appropriate medical care and necessary equipment. While implementing nationwide project "Cradles of Hope", the Victor Pinchuk Foundation has set the following key objectives: to reduce infant mortality in the country and improve quality of lives of the saved children, and to help our country in transition to international standards for birth registration.

Continuing implementation of the program “Cradles of Hope”, in 2011 the Victor Pinchuk Foundation became a partner in the national project “New Life”. As part of this project, which focuses on opening perinatal centers throughout Ukraine, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation has committed to supply intensive care units for newborns with modern medical equipment. Over the period of 2011-2013, in partnership with the “New Life”, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation equipped 13 neonatal centers.

In addition to equipping neonatal centers with the high quality equipment, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation systematically provides technical support to the neonatal centers (equipment repairs and provision of consumables to ensure nonstop functioning of the centers) and pays great attention to regular activities intended to give medical staff with the latest knowledge and technologies in neonatal nursing. Since program launch in 2006, 2 808 healthcare professionals from all regions of Ukraine have taken part in the educational events hosted by the Foundation under this program.

Since “Cradles of Hope” program launch, 663 407 infants have been born in partner hospitals. 95 076 of them were patients of intensive care and resuscitation units. According to doctors, 57 651 babies were saved due to, among other things, the equipment installed within the "Cradles of Hope" project.

The overall costs the Victor Pinchuk Foundation has invested into the program "Cradles of Hope” since its launch in 2006 totals UAH 114 025 728 (including UAH 48 563 179. 90 for implementation of the joint program with the national project ”New Life”).
