Despite the war and destruction, new lives continue to be born in Ukraine. Unfortunately, now it’s not uncommon for young mothers to have to give birth in bomb shelters, basements, subway stations, during the evacuation, and even under shelling. Hundreds of destroyed hospitals, and pharmacies, bombed grocery stores and food warehouses, and a problematic supply of baby products from abroad led to a shortage of specialized products for pregnant women. Postpartum mothers and babies in the first months of their lives more than ever need special care and help.
Our BGV Charity Fund in cooperation with German partners – dm-drogerie markt pharmacy chain and #WeAreAllUkrainians – implemented a charity project in Ukraine with the aim of helping and supporting women in labour in Ukraine.
As part of the project’s first wave, we collected and delivered 10,000 sets for babies with the essential products to Ukraine for more than one million euros. Our logistics partner Nova Poshta delivered all these kits to families of newborn babies all over Ukraine absolutely for free.
On August 16, the long-awaited second wave of our charity project started, as part of which another 10,000 families will receive kits for mothers and children. New donors joined and increased the aid with their products—companies HIPP and Chicco.
We support a new life in Ukraine! We believe in a happy future!
The newborn child’s mother from any region and settlement in Ukraine can receive the kit. At the time of application for the kit, the child’s age should not be older than two months, as all products in our set are intended for children aged 0–2 months. Our fund provides aid in the amount of one kit for one newborn; you can apply for two sets for a family with twins.
It’s easy to receive a kit. Please fill out a short application on our website, provide information about you and your child, your contact info, and details for delivery with the Nova Poshta service; and attach a photo or scan of the documents to the application: birth certificate and your ID (both sides) or passports (first and second pages, and registration page).
We process the application within a two-three week. If all the information you provided is correct, we will automatically confirm the application and send you a kit to the specified branch of Nova Poshta. Otherwise, we will contact you to clarify the information.
Dear moms and dads!
In a short period of time, we received an incredible number of applications from you. Thousands of completed forms.
We are currently forced to put the application process on a short pause to allow our system to rest a bit, managers to catch up on information processing, and to ship the first batch of aid.
Thank you for your understanding!
The resumption of applications is tentatively scheduled for August 23.
