The "Breathe" Charity Fund, Kyiv, was established in April 2020 by Sayenko Kharenko's partners Sergey Pogrebnoy, Chairman of the Board of APKBU, and Michael Kharenko, together with Ukrainian businessmen Vyacheslav Lysenko, Founder of UKR-CHINA COMMUNICATION, and Yuriy Kryvosheya, Managing Partner and President of Toronto-Kyiv. “Breathe” Charity Fund website:

The constant shelling of Ukrainian cities by enemy missiles and hundreds of wounded and killed people daily will remind us that the war continues and the need remains great. The “Breathe” Charity Fund supports the Ukrainian civilian population, including refugees and Ukrainian hospitals.

In June, the necessary medicines and consumables were delivered to:

  • National Cancer Institute;
  • The State Institution “Romodanov Neurosurgery Institute National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine”;
  • Kyiv City Clinical Oncology Center;
  • Lviv Polytechnic National University;
  • several military hospitals; and
  • field hospitals.

In addition to financial support, the “Breathe” Charity Fund also receives humanitarian aid. This month we received 480 MFAK from our new US partners, the US-Ukraine Foundation. The Foundation supports the people of Ukraine in their quest for freedom, democracy, a free-market economy, and human rights. The multi-first aid kit (MFAK) can be used on multiple people. It looks like a traditional medical kit; however, it has items required for traumatic injuries.

We heartfully thank you for supporting those who are in most need. We will continue to inform you about the distribution of aid obtained with your generous assistance. 

Donations can be made via the Fund’s website.
