Preparing for the next charity auctions

We are preparing the next prize lots for the upcoming charity auctions to raise funds for children with special educational needs who have suffered from the war.
And for this purpose, we are very happy to meet incredibly interesting and special Ukrainians!

Recently, we had the honor to meet a Ukrainian war correspondent, filmmaker, videographer, photographer, photojournalist and writer - Mstyslav Chernov Since the beginning of the war, Mstyslav Chernov and Yevhen Malolhetka have been in Mariupol, where they went on the eve of the full-scale war on February 23. They are the authors of the photographs that spread around the world and confirmed the war crimes of the Russian army and its leadership against the Ukrainian people. Pictures from hospitals, broken streets, and the bombing of maternity hospitals and other civilian infrastructure by the occupiers became one of the key levers that persuaded the international community to support Ukraine in this war. From the collected material, Mstislav Chernov, in cooperation with the Associated Press and American documentary filmmakers from Frontline, created a documentary film, 20 Days in Mariupol, which aims to present a true image of the events to be shown to the world. About 10% of the video and photos were sent from the only point in the city where there was a mobile phone signal. It took about 30 hours to get the video out through the humanitarian corridor. The world premiere took place at the Sundance Film Festival, where the film won the Audience Award. Then there were screenings and awards at 6 more festivals. Mstyslav's film was shown before a meeting of the UN General Assembly. The Ukrainian journalists received the Pulitzer Prize for their work.
Ali Saulidi, a well-known shoe designer, has been designing and sewing modern models of tactical footwear for our defenders since the first days of the war.
Markiyan Zadumlyy and Markiyan Matsiyovskyi headed the Kyiv Angels project, which provides powerful assistance to the military.
Vladyslav Malashchenko is the founder of Good Bread from Good People, a social bakery employing people with mental disabilities. Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the social bakery has been baking free bread in its Kyiv workshop for Kharkiv, Kherson, Donbas, and other Ukrainian regions. Vladislav, we are glad to meet you and thank you for raising the issue of mental disability and changing the lives of special people for the better!
We came to the Ohmadyt hospital to meet Anastasia Magerramova, the head of the hospital's press office! At the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the doctors lived in the hospital and had no respite, constantly having to treat the wounded. Anastasia gave comments to the world press, received journalists and told the story of the children who suffered from the shelling. Anastasia stayed at work for almost 2 months recording everything that was happening! Thank you for your work!

Rita is a talented Ukrainian actress whose creative biography includes the psychological drama Parthenon and Butterfly's Vision, and she also works as a fixer, helping the world media to cover events in Ukraine!
