Prime Vision has donated € 4,270 to the Haarlem4Ukraine Foundation and the money will be used for the MedHelpDnipro, a volunteer organization in the city of Dnipro that has been helping doctors – and thus the wounded – since the outbreak of war. From the more than € 4,000, MedHelpDnipro will buy a lung ventilator machine for artificial respiration during operations on soldiers. This machine is essential and will save many lives.
On July 18, our colleague Casper Fischer presented the check on behalf of Prime Vision to Ulyana Loginova, the director of Haarlem4Ukraine. This took place at the Badhuis in Haarlem. The Badhuis is the meeting center of Haarlem4Ukraine for Ukrainians who have fled to Haarlem. A logical place to receive the check. Everyone here sympathizes with the soldiers at the front fighting for their homeland.
MedHelpDnipro at the front
MedHelpDnipro’s energetic volunteers have been supporting a large number of hospitals in the city of Dnipro since March 2022, but they also support brigades on the front lines. A brigade is the largest unit form the Army (between 2,000 and 3,000 soldiers). Each brigade has a medical unit. So far, MedHelpDnipro has already been able to supply ten ventilators to various brigades. The eleventh machine, funded by Prime Vision, is a welcome addition because soldiers are still being wounded on a daily basis.
Money raised through auction
The money for the charity was raised through an auction among Prime Vision staff. For example, business gifts were auctioned off . A bar of chocolate fetched as much as 100 euros. Chocolate for the bidder, money for charity. But smaller amounts also counted. The total amount came to € 4,270. Haarlem4Ukraine and MedHelpDnipro are extremely grateful to Prime Vision and hope that this way of fundraising will spread to other companies..
