The Victor Pinchuk Foundation provided assistance to the neonatal intensive care unit at the Cradles of Hope centre in Dnipro

The Victor Pinchuk Foundation has bought medical equipment supplies and paid to have two compressor aggregates replaced for the neonatal intensive care unit at the Dnipro Multidisciplinary Clinical Hospital of Mother and Child named after Professor M.F. Rudnev for the sum of UAH 181,991. In particular, the unit received temperature and pulse oximeter sensors, adapters and humidification chambers for lung ventilators.

Additionally, the Ukraine Relief Fund, a joint charitable initiative established by Victor and Olena Pinchuk and the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, Eric and Wendy Schmidt and Schmidt Futures, Robert F. Smith and Vista Equity Partners, Andrew and Nicola Forrest's Minderoo Foundation, Bill Ford and the General Atlantic Foundation, sponsored the purchase of linear and micro-convex transducers for a MyLab Five ultrasound system (Esaote, Italy) worth a total of UAH 330,000 for the needs of the unit.

The Cradles of Hope partner centre has been functioning in this medical institution since 2006. The Foundation financed the complete renovation of the paediatric rehabilitation ward for infants with perinatal pathologies, the installation of an operating theatre and the purchase of modern hi-tech medical equipment for nursing and treating premature infants, including those with extremely low birth weight (under 1 kg). The Victor Pinchuk Foundation's has invested over UAH 2.72 million in this Cradles of Hope centre (2006-2021).

Today, amid full-scale Russian military aggression against our country, the hospital provides medical care to women and children from occupied and unsafe areas. In 2022, there were 230 births, and 42 babies were born to women who were forced to leave their homes and seek refuge in safer places because of the war. In total, the hospital has helped 217 temporarily displaced children and adults.

Oleksandr Buyalskyy, head of the neonatal intensive care unit, said: "Over the years of cooperation, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation has helped us to reach a new quality level of specialised care for newborns, which saved many children's lives. The Foundation's constant focus of on our problems, both big and small, is especially important and valuable now, at a time of such a terrible war and great concern for our common future. A part of this future is born every day in our hospital, and together we must do everything we can to ensure that children grow up healthy and happy."
