“BE POWERFUL at 300 W (omen)!” charitable project
UKRAINIAN WOMEN for WARRIORS of UKRAINE:
”WE DO NOT BUY WHEELCHAIRS, WE RAISE THE GRAVERY INJURED TO THEIR FEET!”
Since the beginning of the war in the East of Ukraine, more than 30 000 people have been severely wounded in hostilities. Approximately 40 % of traumas are head injuries. The warriors with central nervous system damage, who are in need of a specialized neuro rehabilitation, find themselves in a difficult situation.
Being aware of the necessity to help recover these brave men in Ukraine, on April 4, 2019 “KRAN” Charitable Fund launched a fundraising campaign to buy a GE-O System Evolution (Reha Technology, Switzerland) a robotic-assisted device to restore walking of gravely wounded ATO veterans, who undergo treatment & rehabilitation in the framework of the “Nodus” Charitable project.
As long as 300 Ukrainian women will be involved in this unusual charity initiative, the fundraising project is called “Be Powerful at 300 W(omen)!”
This video shows WHY WE DO THIS?
Initially there were three of us, now there are 82. And we need – 300. Those who care about supporting the gravely wounded soldiers in their desire to get back on their feet.
Our charitable project is not just about buying a robotic device to restore natural walking, but about not being indifferent, about the value of those who returned from the hell of war. The war is still going on…
In this way we would like to show the potential of women’s solidarity with those mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, who support their gravely injured men, upon their return home from the battlefield. We are willing to help Ukrainian warriors raise from a wheelchair and get back to active social life.
In view of the charitable purpose of the acquisition, the cost of G-EO System Evolution, is 288 000 Eur.
On September 10, 2020 “KRAN” Fund made an advance payment of 100 000 Eur to the equipment supplier. The first payment was made thanks to the women who have already supported our charitable project with their donations.
On February 18, 2021, the G-EO System Evolution robotic device was launched at “Nodus”!
Olexandr Olenchuk, a 26-year-old ATO veteran, who had been undergoing specialized rehabilitation for free in the framework Nodus Charitable Project since October 2016, became the first Soldier to get on this device from a wheel chair. An unforgettable moment! Get on your feet from the wheelchair and make a step and make another step forward… on your feet again! Tears in his mother’s eyes. Tears of joy.
For us, the initiators and participants of “Be powerful at 300 W(omen)” – this is a real Victory, Success and Joy!
We had been dreaming of this day for a long time, persuading, stirring hope, uniting efforts and means.
By now 82 women in Ukraine and abroad (Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Canada) and 11 companies have made their donations and turned the DREAM of many severely injured defenders of Ukraine – to get out of a wheelchair and restore walking, in reality in Ukraine, not abroad!
We can do this Together! The device has been working at Nodus. Now gravely wounded fighters have the possibility to restore normal walking faster, thanks to this advanced technology in the hands of the talented, experienced medical team of NODUS – a partner clinic of “KRAN” Charitable Fund.
11soldiers and one father of a fallen fighter have already undergone rehabilitation at G-EO System Evolution in the framework of Nodus Charitable project!
By now we have paid 200 000 Eur. We need to fundraise 88 000 Eur to finalize the payment for the equipment by the end of October 2022. We will do it!
Now more than before we need YOUR support to pay for the device in full and to have it delivered and installed in the clinic! We are going forward with the fundraising!
