Supplying hospitals and children with onchology with medications is one of the most important directions of the Fund's activities.

In the hospitals of Ukraine there continues to be a constant need in unregistered medications, which are not purchased by the state.

Apart from that, the storage of medications from the previous purchase keeps decreasing, some very important medicines are under re-registration. That is why the The Charity Fund “Tabletochki” is covering all those needs.

We purchase medications for 9 hospitals all over Ukraine. Apart from that we provide direct help to children with oncology, who contact us in order to get the support.

Since the Fund has been established we purchased medications for 1800 children. 

In August we bought the medicines and medical equipment for 115 000 USD for Kyiv and regional oncological hospital departments. We bought 2811 items, packages and bottles of solutions, antibacterial, antineoplastic, untimetic, untifungal and other medications.
We also bought supplies for 37 692 USD, paid for RI (692 USD) and implant (1 654 USD).

The biggest purchase of August appeared to be Trima Accel sets for platelets, plasma and red blood cells – 25415 USD for 118 items.

In August Tabletochki together with the Ministry of Helath signed the cooperation memorandum aimed to raise the quality of medical and social aid to kids with oncology and gematological illnesses.

In September we spent 111 153 USD to buy 2 589 items, packages and bottles of solutions, antibacterial, antineoplastic, untimetic, untifungal and other medications for 6 reginal hospitals.

The biggest purchase of September again appeared to be Trima Accel sets for platelets, plasma and red blood cells – 15939 USD for 74 items.

In our work we base on complex and regular help to the children with oncology and their parents all over Ukraine. We purchase medications for regional hospitals, solve strategic health issues on the governmental level, engage volunteers form all regions of Ukraine.

The past three months have been very active, full of events and results, namely:

1. On June 29 the “Access to the intensive care units” campaign got the European Communication Award 2017 in Brussels as the best communication campaign among non-profit organizations. It was the first prize in that nomination ever won by Ukraine.

The victory in this nomination is a good chance to remind everyone that both adult and child reanimations should be open for the patients’ relatives. There is nothing impossible for those people who do not remain indifferent and choose to be proactive. Together we can achieve many goals and provide significant changes in Ukraine.
«Access to the intensive care units» unites 50 non-profit organizations, civil activists and volunteers. This campaign has a zero budget and contains 10 000 man-hours. This campaign opened nearly 700 departments of intensive therapy all over Ukraine for 200 000 patients and almost 1 000 000 relatives a year.

2. However, apart from working systematically we still manage to keep the individual focus on a child and child’s needs. For example, this summer we helped to implement a wish of Olena, who gets her treatment in Kyiv regional oncologic dispensary, takes the course of chemotherapy and gets ready for the operation. The girl missed times when she was healthy and did horseracing. That’s why she dreamt of getting back to her previous life as soon as possible.

We organized a small trip to the equestrian club, where Olena managed to do horse riding, which brought her much joy and happiness.

3. The child’s survival depends on the duration of the curing process, which is based on forehanded availability of the required medications. Though the government purchases only a part of the required medications and their price is extremely high, while the salary of Ukrainian families is not enough to cover the expenses not only for the medications but even for such essentials as food. Together with you we provide support to these families by means of buying necessary medications.

In May we collected 100 000 USD. We bought medications and medical equipment for 90 000 USD. We purchased 2 779 items of antibacterial, antiemetic, antitumoral and other medicines for the patients of 8 oncological departments of Kyiv and regional hospitals. We also spent 14 300 USD on consumables, 8 770 USD on medical equipment and 100 USD on a boiler for the hospital. The biggest purchase this month was an antifungal medication Vyfend, which costed 8 442 USD for 50 small bottles.

In June we collected 134 615 USD. We bought medications and medical equipment for 105 770 USD. We also purchased 2793 items of antibacterial, antiemetic, antitumoral and other medicines for the patients of 9 oncological departments of Kyiv and regional hospitals. We spent 21 310 USD on consumables. Our biggest purchase in June were sets required for the blood separator Amikus, which costed 16 610 USD for 68 items.

In July we raised 54 231 USD. We spent 101 923 USD on the medications and medical equipment. We also purchased 2588 items of antibacterial, antiemetic, antitumoral and other medicines for the patients of 7 oncological departments of Kyiv and regional hospitals. We spent 21 310 USD on consumables. Our biggest purchase in July was Trima Accel sets, that costed 16 800 USD for 78 items.

In August we will continue to support the medical reform, control purchases of medications for 2017 and will pursue forehanded governmental payment for patients' treatment abroad.

Thank you very much! Everything is possible only with your support!

Most of the ukrainian families are not able to cover the expenses on medications prescribed for their children in order to fight the cancer. That is why one of our most important aim is to supply hospitals with those medications that are not financed by the state. We also raise funds for sending our wards for the bone marrow transplantations to the clinics abroad.

From the very beginning The Charity Fund «PILLS» has been helping kids having oncohematological decease, however lately we felt that there is a huge lack of help for those children who are struggling from other types of cancer.

Therefore there was taken the decision to expend Fund's expertise and to move towards helping children all over Ukraine to fight all kinds of cancer.

In February we bought the medicines and medical equipment for $68 000 for Kyiv and regional oncological departments of the hospitals.

The biggest purchase in February was the antimycotic medicine – Ampholip – 126 packages for $11 115, while our biggest event was a fleshmob for the international children’s cancer day.

In March we raised $ 37 092. The biggest purchase was antineoplastic medicine Onkaspar – 3 packages for $5 740.

The biggest event in March was the event organized in ukrainian schools “Coins for children”, where pupils raised coins for children having oncohematology. 

In April we bought medicines and medical equipment for $91 538.

The biggest purchase in April appeared to be Granocyte (the medicine stimulating leucopoiesis) – 40 packages for $15 215. We also participated in Nova Poshta Kyiv Half Marathon, where our runners-fundraisers took part.

We consider the passed 3 months to be very successful for our Fund and we appreciate your support, with the help of which The Charity Fund «PILLS» is able to provide essential medicines that can save many children's lives from various parts of Ukraine!

30% of all cancer cases diagonsed refer to cancer among children under the age of 6. Blood cancer constitutes 50% of all cases of child hematological malignancies. Ukraine ranks 5th in Europe in terms of child mortality from cancer. Unfortunately, government does not provide enough medicines for kids with such diagnoses. As a result of that kids do not get proper treatment and suffer from not being able to receive needed medicines for recovery or at least for a little relief from their pain.

One of the most important task of Charity Fund Tabletochki(Pills) is to supply hospitals with those medications that are not financed by the state. Moreover, since governmental tenders for purchasing of medications do not take place for months, Tabletochki covers this gap as well.

We wish that in the nearest future there would be no need to fill in this gap, but now we are kindly asking to support our beneficiaries.

Since Tabletochki(Pills) has started taking part in providing help for Ukrainian kids with cancer desease, and for hospitals dealing with such kids, 1 650 young patients received help in the amount of $1 391 734.

We purchase medications and medical supplies for the Center of Hematological Cancer and Bone Marrow Transplantation at the Okhmatdit Clinic, Reference Center for Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics and Metrology at the Okhmatdit Clinic and for Kyiv Reginal Childhood Oncology Center as well as for the patients from 13 regional Oncological centers.

Usually we purchase the most up-to-date and the most effective medications, which are very expensive. These are the medications for anti-fungal and anti-tumor therapy, supportive care and immunotherapy. It is the government who should purchase many of necessary medications, but as a rule, tenders for such purchases are either held with significant delays or not held at all. Therefore many of the pills couldn't be purchased in the pharmacy that is around the corner, as they are not registered in Ukraine

Though if the medicines appear in the pharmacies, prices for them are extremly high and most of the families can hardly afford them.

In 2016 expenses of medical supplies exceeded 400 000 USD.

For the last three months, Charitable Fund Tabletochki(Pills) spent 1 860 850 UAH (64 361 EUR) for purchasing medications: 2791 packages of pills, solutions, antibacterial medications, antemetics, anti-tumor and other medications.

We have also purchased 10 sets of Trima Accel for platelets, infusion sets for Okhmadit Hospital, filter systems for red blood cells, Imugard III-PL filters and biopsy needles for the oncohematology department.

With your support Charitable Foundation Tabletochki(Pills) is able to provide essential medicines that can save many children's lives from various parts of Ukraine.

 

Thank you for giving these children opportunity to see «tomorrow»!

 

And thank you for giving us(Tabletochki) tools to build «tomorrow» for them!

Alexan, Tsytozar, Vinkristin, Vankomitsyn, Zivoks are not all the names of medications that are very well know to all parents of kids that have cancer. This is not surprisingly at all. These medications can help to their beloved children at least not to feel pain, but what is most important, finally to win the battle with this terrible disease.

Prices for these medicines are extremly high. Besides, many of the pills couldn't be perchased in the pharmacy that is around the corner, because many of the medicines are not registered in Ukraine. Taking into consideration that mothers are spending all the time with kids in the hospitals and fathers works 24 hours in day earning money for very expensive treatment (avarage sallary in Ukraine is 3 000 UAH (106 EUR) - to buy highly needed medicines that cost at least 1 000 UAH per package is a real challange. Charitable Foundation "Pills" with your support is able to provide essential medicines that can save more than one life for children with cancer from various parts of Ukraine. According to the statistics, every fifth child in Ukraine is diagnosed with cancer. 

In August, 2016 Charitable Foundation "Pills" spent 874 906 UAH (31 104 EUR) to buy 725 packages of pills.

In September, 2016, 1 289 483 UAH (45 844 EUR) helped to cover purchase of 2 064 packages and bottles of medications.
