Good Deeds Marathon at the Pharmaceutical Firm “Darnitsa”
Traditional Good Deeds Marathon was held at the Pharmaceutical Firm “Darnitsa” in support of the project “Territory of Healing” for children affected by hostilities in eastern Ukraine. Employees of the metropolitan enterprise of the company joined the event. Charitable contributions gathered during the Marathon were handed over to SOS Children's Villages Ukraine.
In 2017, on the initiative of the employees of the Pharmaceutical Firm “Darnitsa”, the tradition of charity marathons was launched. They are aimed at raising funds and providing resource assistance to non-governmental organizations and charitable foundations that take care of socially disadvantaged citizens and children in need of assistance.
This year’s marathon began on November 27 as a token of support for the public initiative Generous Tuesday. The event was held in the format of master classes, the moderators of which were employees. A total of nine master classes were held within the framework of the Good Deeds Marathon at Darnitsa, during which the company’s staff learned how to create decorations, gifts with their own hands, and also mastered the methods of provision of premedical care. Altogether almost one and a half hundred employees joined the Marathon.
The Marathon was finished on the eve of St. Nicholas Day to transfer the raised charitable funds to support the project of creating a sensory room in the social center of SOS Children's Villages Ukraine in Sievierodonetsk. The organizers of the Territory of Healing project plan to equip the relevant room with special stimulators aimed at various senses to help children with sensory-motor disorders, delayed speech and psychomotor development, early infantile autism syndrome. Also, the sensory room can be used to work with children who have experienced violence or other stressful situations.
