Naftogaz Helps Hospitals in Chernihiv Region in the Fight against Coronavirus

JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya, a member of Naftogaz Group, financed and shipped for free medical equipment for 11 medical institutions in Chernihiv and Chernihiv region.

On July 3, 2020, Director General of JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya Olena Kobets and Head of Chernihiv Regional State Administration Andriy Prokopenko met with representatives of medical institutions in Chernihiv region to hand over medical supplies as part of charitable assistance.

The Chernihiv Regional Children's Hospital, the Chernihiv Central District Hospital, Chernihiv City Hospital No. 2, the Chernihiv Maternity Hospital and 7 central district hospitals will receive 38 patient monitors and 9,000 protective suits from Naftogaz. The Chernihiv Central District Hospital will additionally receive a state-of-the-art X-ray system.

“For Naftogaz, the health of employees and the population of the country is one of the overriding priorities. Therefore, since the beginning of the quarantine, we have focused our support specifically on hospitals and the protection of health workers to help the country in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Our team worked 24/7 to purchase and deliver to Ukraine the necessary amount of medical supplies, which was coordinated with the Ministry of Health. In addition, we have set up a number of charitable projects, including assistance to communities where we produce gas, and assistance to educational institutions conducting the EIT and entrance exams,” said Olena Kobets, Director General of JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya.

“We are grateful to Naftogaz for helping medical institutions in Chernihiv region. The assistance provided will save many lives. Thankfully, the leading state-owned company not only ensures the country's energy security, but also cares about the health of Ukrainians,” said Andriy Prokopenko, Head of Chernihiv Regional State Administration.

Naftogaz provided assistance to hospitals in Chernihiv region as part of the Mriya project. The project was set up in May, when Naftogaz Group purchased 500,000 protective suits, 700 patient monitors, 50 mobile digital X-ray systems and 50 portable ultrasound machines for Ukrainian hospitals worth a total of 500 MUAH.
