Fund “Social partnership”, which helps poor people of Kyiv, received 40
thousand hryvnias under the program “Shelterinastorm” of international
corporation IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group). These funds will be directed
to a medical treatment of the people, suffered from recent abnormal weather
conditions in Kyiv.
Through help of InterContinentalKyiv hotel, which is controlled by IHG corporation, the Fund team has managed to arrange rendering of system and large-scale assistance to pensioners, disabled persons, large families and the homeless, who have vital need in medicines. Those in need will receive medicines in accordance with their exigencies, because, in fact, everybody knows, that some medicines cost up to 100 UAH, or, sometimes, even more. How poor pensioners can find enough money to buy such expensive these medicines?Now everyone can receive medicaments absolutely free at 31 mobile help points and in charity center “Stephania”, which cover the whole city of Kyiv and help more than 2000 people every day.
“Of course, these figures and several sentences
cannot reflect faces and emotions of people, for whom a plate of porridge, some
medicaments and simple kind words mean real help, survival and a hope. Some of
them are thankful; some of them believe that other people have such commitments
to them. But even to have own opinion one must stay alive. I would like to thank
you on behalf of people, who cannot help themselves all too often”, - said Artem
Makeev, President of the Fund “Social partnership”.
should be noted that, IHG corporation has been already represented in Ukraine
by InterContinentalKyiv hotel for 4.5 years. Doing responsible business is very
important for us, as international organization. We always helped and help
people in distress, support local community. Distress can have different forms
– tsunami, earthquake, and sometimes it happens that a person finds himself on
the pavement in winter. Such situation is equal to all the acts of God and life
of such people depends on you and us at this moment. We never doubted for a second in a necessity
of the support. It is in people’s nature to find a shelter when such acts of God
and manmade disasters occur.
IHG corporation we consider this a key role of the hotels in a society. Program
“IHG Shelter in a storm” and the fund, formed under this program, allow us to
respond promptly to critical emergencies and to provide necessary assistance to
local communities of the cities, where our hotels are situated. I hope our
contribution will help as many people in need as possible”, – says Jean
Baptiste Pigeon, General Manager of InterContinentalKyiv hotel.
