In Kiev is the hospital department in which live children for a long time, because of chronic kidney failure. In this department children live for years, waiting for the turn to kidney transplantation. And they need to be in the hospital, because they are on dialysis. Today children sleep on beds that have to be changed long time ago because of the old lifetime. Mattresses are already available for new beds. Near every bed is a bedside table. The bedside tables are also falling apart. We with children started drawing pictures for their selling at the exhibition. We want to earn money. I believe, that together with your participation, we will be able to close this issue. We declare the fund-raising for making beds!

Olga Gerasymyuk, deputy of Ukraine, TV hostess of “Without Taboo” talk-show

«You show your actions with deeds rather than with words. You are conducting real work in hospitals and with children medicine abandoned....

Children who came across Rivil Kofman and her “Strong-willed” fund became genuinely strong-willed. The name of the fund is for a reason – to honor those overcoming dreadful diseases.... You are working miracles and it is very good. I was taught to start “tomorrow” with faith in better. Let it be so!»
