FESCO Transportation Group (“FESCO”, the “Group”) together with Rusfond Charity Fund is extending the program of assistance to critically ill children of Primorye for the year 2022. For these purposes, the Group will allocate 5 million rubles.
The joint program was launched in January 2020 and operates in accordance with the principle of co-financing. FESCO and Rusfond together cover the costs of treating critically ill children living in the Primorsky Territory: the Group undertakes to collect 50% of the required sum, the remaining half is contributed by readers and donators of the fund.
During operation of the program, 25 little residents of Primorye have received high-tech medical care. Over the three years of cooperation, FESCO has allocated 15 million rubles to Rusfond and remains the only company that conducts such large-scale charitable work with the fund in the region.
“We strive to support sustainable development of Primorye, to contribute to the formation of such a social environment where no one would feel that he was left in trouble alone. Therefore, for the third year now we are cooperating with Rusfond, which not only provides direct assistance to critically ill children, but also contributes to improvement of all domestic medicine,” said Ekaterina Grishkovets, Vice-president, Marketing & Communications of FESCO.
“Since January 2020, FESCO Transportation Group together with Rusfond has been providing assistance to critically ill children of the Primorsky Territory. During this period, we managed to help 25 children and in some cases to save lives. It was thanks to the participation of FESCO that this had been made possible. We hope that in 2022 our cooperation will do a lot of good and will help those who need it,” said Lyudmila Fomina, Development Director of Rusfond.
Helping the children of Primorye is one of key directions of the local community support and development program within the framework of the FESCO corporate social responsibility strategy. Starting from 2021, all elements in this direction are carried out under general brand “FESCO for Children”, which unites various efforts of companies of the Group aimed at supporting children and youth in Primorye.
