Farmak allocated UAH 1.3 million to distinguish the merits of Ukrainian medical workers
On August 9, 2023, the annual ceremony of awarding the best medical workers with the Order of St. Panteleimon was held in Kyiv. The Farmak company and the Zhebrivsky Family Charitable Foundation* allocated UAH 1,300,000 to distinguish the merits of Ukrainian medical workers.
The Order of St. Panteleimon is the highest award for professionalism and merits, which is awarded to medical workers for their significant contribution to healthcare. This year, the Medical Oscars were received by 47 nominees. Among them are doctors, nurses, military surgeons, pediatricians, hospital heads, and scientists.
The best medical workers were chosen in categories “For selfless service to the Ukrainian people, courage and independence in the fight for the health of Ukrainians, for the freedom and independence of Ukraine in the war against the russian aggressor” (for civilian doctors) and “For selfless service to the Ukrainian people, courage and steadfastness in the fight for the health of Ukrainians, for the freedom and independence of Ukraine in the war against the russian aggressor” (for military doctors).
“This award is a symbol of recognition of the valor and dedication of our medical workers, who every day save lives and ensure the health of our compatriots. We appreciate their tireless work, both in the rear and on the front lines, and we want them to feel our respect and support. We are very grateful to them for their self-sacrifice, thanks to which we can remain a free and healthy people,” said Filya Zhebrovska, Chairwoman of the Farmak Supervisory Board.
Filya Zhebrovska, Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board of Farmak and founder of the Zhebrivsky Family Charitable Foundation, became a member of the Honorary Board of the Order of St. Panteleimon in July 2017. Since then, Farmak has been sponsoring the award for the seventh time. During this time, the company has allocated more than 7 million hryvnias to distinguish the best doctors.
Caring for the health of those affected by the occupation: Farmak supported the Mobile Doctors project for the third time
For the third time, with the support of Farmak, the Mobile Doctors project helped people from the de-occupied territories to undergo medical examinations and receive medicines. This time, last weekend, doctors visited the village of Pakul, Chernihiv region, located about 12 km from the border with Belarus, which also suffered from russian aggression.
The villages and towns that were under occupation experienced terrible events: torture, hunger, shelling, constant fear, lack of necessities, water, and hygiene products. Of course, all this affected the health of their residents. Many people who remained in their home villages after the occupation are elderly people who have no one to take care of them, therefore it is very difficult for them to recover without outside help.
Thanks to the Mobile Doctors project, the residents of Pakul village underwent an almost complete medical examination, which allowed them to start treatment.
The car is equipped with an ultrasound room, a laboratory for tests (a general blood test, a thyroid-stimulating hormone test) and a psychotherapist’s office.
Registration and admission of patients was carried out at the local urgent care center, where the organizers brought all the necessary equipment. During the trip to Pakul, patients had consultations with a neurologist, gynecologist, endocrinologist, cardiologist (including ECG), therapist, dermatological oncologist, vascular surgeon, gastroenterologist, ophthalmologist. We also set up a pharmacy, where people were given medicines for free.
During these two days, 213 people underwent more than 1,000 examinations. In particular, 90 people visited an ophthalmologist, 70 visited an endocrinologist, and more than 60 visited a psychotherapist.
“It is necessary to provide assistance and “restore” health of the people now, because diseases will not wait until everything stabilizes. Every time we see people coming for examination, it is difficult to keep emotions under control. Unfortunately, many of them are in serious condition, unable to take care of themselves, get to a hospital in another city or buy medicines. These people need support, and we, businesses, society, charitable organizations, must help them,” says Yevgeniya Piddubna, Director of Corporate Communications at Farmak.
Last year, within the framework of the Mobile Doctors project, with the support of Farmak, assistance was provided to residents of the village of Moshchun (Kyiv region) and Kyyinka (Chernihiv region).
