Bancomzvjazok JSC at the Charity Auction “The Art That Saves”, Which Was Organized by Oschadbank

Almost 2 million UAH was collected during the charity auction “The Art That Saves”, organized by Oschadbank in conjunction with the Volonterska Sotnya Public Association, the Mysteskyi Arsenal National Cultural-Arts and Museum Complex, and the Art Management Agency of Cultural Initiatives. The proceeds will be used to help peaceful residents of one of the most shelled points in Ukraine – Maryinka. There are 120 children and 20 seriously ill elderly bed-patients. They daily and nightly look death in the eye, but they want to survive at any cost. They really need help. At a charity auction, unusual lots have been presented – boxes for ammunition, turned by fifteen famous Ukrainian artists into chests with a unique painting. Also at the auction one could buy boxes painted by children – pupils of art schools and volunteers. Our company did not hesitate to join in and take part in such an important, noble cause. As Serhii Oleksiiovych Snihyr, the First Deputy Director notes, “We immediately liked the lot of Ukrainian artist Yana Sedova – The Butterfly. The idea of the author is close to us: indeed, we really would like to make changes in our country for the better. It is we, Ukrainians, with our presence, trying hard to make a small contribution to our daily fruitful work.”
