At the Annual Meeting 2017 Razom for Ukraine provided a third grant to the Support Hospitals in Ukraine project, which will finalize the delivery of the fourth container of medical equipment to Ukrainian hospitals in need. This last, third grant from Razom summed up to the total financial support of $23,000. We are proud to partner up with and support the project with such a noble mission – “Provide hospitals in Ukraine with the much-needed medical equipment and supplies”.
Razom is pleased to announce a new RazomPartners project to support students from Ukraine at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) – MathOlymp.
Razom is happy to announce that with the support of our donors and volunteers we were able to sponsor the transportation of 20 artists participating in the Galicia Cult festival in Kharkiv that ran Oct. 2-18, 2016.
Galicia Cult is a multidisciplinary social-cultural forum that aims to introduce eastern Ukrainians to modern western-Ukrainian culture. Besides promoting a cultural exchange, the forum also intends to break common stereotypes in both the east and the west.
Hromadske Radio spent a week in New York City and Washington, DC to connect with their US counterparts in public radio. Razom volunteers arranged the program and hosted the team, and the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv awarded Hromadske Radio a travel grant.
Razom has provided a $3,000 grant to the Support Hospitals in Ukraine project. The project is committed to raise $100,000 to send five 40-foot containers to Ukrainian hospitals in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia and other areas in need. Five containers will equate to more than $2 million worth of medical equipment and supplies that are specifically requested by hospitals in Ukraine.
As part of our Razom Partners initiative, we are excited to partner with “Moy Gorod”, a marketplace of social projects and civic activists. “Moy Gorod” is an online platform in Odessa, Ukraine that gets citizens to create and implement projects to make their city more livable. Together we can better spread the word about this online crowdfunding and collaboration platform that citizens are currently using to make their city cleaner, to improve the look of city street through an art project of converting phone booths into elaborate painting, to find a systematic solution for the problem of stray animals, and much more.
At our January Razom IT Speaker Series event, we learned how civic tech is driving change in Ukraine. Artem Borodatyuk, co-founder of the platform for social good, “Moy Gorod” visited New York and shared his experience of launching an online platform in Odessa, Ukraine that gets citizens to create and implement projects to make their city more livable. He calls it a marketplace of social projects and civic activists.
