New charity project in Ukraine: funds to hand over 10,000 sets for newborns and their mothers
Hennadii Butkevych’s BGV Charity Fund, with German donors and Nova Poshta, launches a charity project to help and support young mothers in Ukraine. The project’s initiators collected and delivered to Ukraine 10,000 sets for newborns and their mothers. Each kit contains specialized products from Germany, including children’s clothing (bodysuits, rompers, socks, and hats), sleeping bags for newborns, diapers, bottles, pacifiers, diaper mats, nappies, baby and mother skin care products, hygiene products (pads, wet wipes, and wet towels), and baby food and tasty food for mothers.
The Nova Poshta postal service acted as a logistics partner of the project; we will send all kits to recipients’ closest post-service branch or address throughout Ukraine for free (except the temporarily occupied territories).
The newborn child’s family from any region and settlement in Ukraine can receive the kit (except the temporarily occupied territories). At the time of application for the kit, the child’s age should not be older than two months, as all products in our set are intended for children aged 0–2 months.
To receive a kit, please fill out a short online application on our website, provide information about the mother and child, contact info of one of the parents to receive the kit, and details for delivery with the Nova Poshta service; and attach a photo or scan of the documents to the application: child’s birth certificate and mother’s ID or passport.
We process the application within a week. If all the information you provided is correct, we will automatically send the application confirmation to your email and deliver you a kit to the specified branch of Nova Poshta. Otherwise, we will contact you to clarify the information in the application.
“Despite the war and destruction, new lives continue to be born in Ukraine. More than 48,000 babies have been born in the country since the start of russia’s large-scale war. Postpartum mothers and babies in their first months need special care and help today more than ever: the UN estimates that 450,000 children in Ukraine under 23 months need extra food. Unfortunately, now it’s not uncommon for young mothers to have to give birth in bomb shelters, basements, subway stations, during the evacuation, and even under shelling. Hundreds of destroyed hospitals, and pharmacies, bombed grocery stores and food warehouses, and a problematic supply of baby products from abroad led to a shortage of specialized products for pregnant women. Therefore, we couldn’t sit idle. For me, as a mother, this project is special. I thank all the partners for their joint efforts. We support a new life in Ukraine and believe in victory,” Anna Butkevych, one of the project initiators, emphasized.
