(Sir Europe – Bratislava) – "In Ukraine, the issue of collecting funds for urgent medical assistance to solve health problems is very crucial", says Rev. Sergiy Tryfiak, director of Caritas-Kolomyia, involved in the program Bank of Good Intentions that has been running in the country for several months and brings its first results. According to his words, "the state is not capable of ensuring even minimal financial assistance for terminal surgeries needed abroad, medical treatment and rehabilitation of the sick". The All-Ukrainian social initiative to collect money for the medical treatment of children and to simplify the whole process of fundraising has already been joined by the offices of Caritas in Kolomyia and Odesa. So far, almost 3,000 EUR have been collected for the purpose. According to Nina Shpakovska from Ukrgazbank, there is an element of mistrust that hinders effective and fast fundraising in Ukraine. As she explains, "due to numerous instances of deceit, Ukrainians often don’t know whether to believe or disbelieve the person who is collecting funds for medical treatment. But thanks to the Bank of Good Intentions and particularly to the participation of Caritas, whose activities are transparent and have a good reputation, such things become understandable, simple and hopeful".
