On December 16 VTB held another campaign in the Moscow Regional Children’s Psychoneurological Hospital under the “World Without Tears” charity program. The hospital was donated a set of brain games, household equipment, TV sets, etc.
Traditionally, VTB together with the heroes of “Good night, kids!” TV program arranged a celebration with presents for little patients of the hospital.
Besides, players of MFK Dinamo Moskva, the leaders of the Russian championship, the top players of the national Russian and Brazilian teams took part in the campaign. The players held a quiz for the children and presented special prizes to the winners.
It was the concluding event in 2010. Under the 2010 Program, VTB provided medical equipment to 15 children's hospitals in Moscow, Novosibirsk, Nizhniy Novgorod, Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar, Vladikavkaz, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Perm, Kazan and Samara. Total financial support rendered by the Bank to the hospitals in 2010 amounted to RUB 16 mln.
Every day Russian hospitals accept thousands of children who require professional medical aid. Very often a hospital requires special medicine and modern equipment to provide medical aid and save children’s life. This is why the charity program “World Without Tears” was created in 2003. Under the program VTB finances procurement of expensive medical equipment, medicaments and expendables for children’s hospitals. “World Without Tears” is a long-term, targeted program focused on support of children’s health care institutions. For the last seven years the Bank has rendered assistance to 36 children’s hospitals and children’s health care institutions in the capital and regions of the Russian Federation.
