Volunteers Have Begun to Repair HIV Unit of Ohmatdyt


Small Heart with Art, which is engaged in the help in HIV-positive and AIDS-infected children, has begun repair of a facade and also warming of the building of HIV unit of “Ohmatdyt” Kyiv hospital.

Except repair of the building, in plans of volunteers of Small Heart with Art is art painting of the repaired building. Six conceptual Ukrainian artists will be engaged in creation of installations and painting of the building: Zhanna Kadyrova, Roman Minin, Alevtina Kakhidze, Tatyana Voytovich, GAZ group – Alexey Zolotarev and Vasily Grublyak.

Selection of artists took place within the open competition from March to May, 2015. About one thousand authors from around the world have participated in a competition.

“We are forced to postpone an art part of the project to the next year as because of weather conditions may not be in time to paint the building. Repair of the building is a priority for us. But work on an art part will begin in spring”, – Evgenia Smirnova, the chairman of the board of the Small Heart with Art organization, emphasizes.

The project of volunteers of Small Heart with Art is implemented with assistance of the “East Europe and Central Asia Union of People living with HIV”, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Fund of Elena Pinchuk “ANTISPID”.

“Children who receive the help in this hospital spend here, unfortunately, much time. And some never knew other house. Our task as adults to make so that these children could be in qualitative conditions, without threatening their health. Such calls in life of these little patients are more than enough. In modern conditions search of means and other resources for implementation of similar projects becoming very difficult. But we are glad that all this is still possible”, – the President ofECUO of PLWH, Vladimir Zhovtyak, comments on an event.

Among the companies which on a charitable basis support the project by materials: Ceresit – the expert in warming, Kompozit – provides the project with paints, Ceramide – a tile for new steps, MAXUS – lighting of the street and building for works, Arenda-lesov – provides towers for construction.
