Businessman Pavlo Fuks bought medical equipment for UAH 13.4 million and also paid for a charter with humanitarian aid
Businessman and philanthropist Pavlo Fuks has been included in the list of Ukrainians who are helping to fight the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. He supported the initiative of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to provide assistance to medical workers and bought two modern X-ray diagnostic systems; he also covered the costs of delivering humanitarian aid from Geneva.
In his Telegram, Fuks reported that X-ray diagnostic complexes were delivered to two hospitals in Kharkiv – №17 and №25.
“I was told that one device can examine more than 100 people a day. Accordingly, two devices can diagnose 200 people a day”, the businessman wrote.
Medical equipment was bought by Pavlo Fuks for UAH 13 million 400 thousand. Thanks to him, all types of graphic examinations, including laterography and tomography, are available to Kharkiv medical workers.
The devices allow to carry out ultra-precise diagnostics and to detect diseases at the initial stage. In addition, modern equipment is much safer for patients: it reduces radiation exposure.
In addition to helping Kharkiv hospitals, Pavlo Fuks also paid for a charter flight with humanitarian aid from Geneva. “It's all for the money I earned, from which taxes were paid”, the businessman said.
On May 5, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Kyrylo Tymoshenko announced, Interfax-Ukraine reports, that UAH 374.6 million have been raised from business to the Fund for the Elimination of Consequences of COVID-19.
