Vadym Novynskyi Foundation Bolsters Zaporizhzhia Hospitals

Through his namesake foundation, Vadym Novynskyi has come to the aid of the city of Zaporizhzhia’s strained hospitals by contributing 15.1 million hryvnias (approximately $4 million dollars). This unprecedented support has greatly reduced the pressure these hospitals are facing amid the humanitarian crisis spurred on by Russia. Due to ongoing attacks by Russian troops in the Zaporizhzhia region, most health care institutions are depleted of resources and facing dangerous levels of burnout. Doctors are regularly treating severe injuries as a result of the ongoing conflict.

What Is the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation?

The Vadym Novynskyi Foundation is the charitable arm of the Smart Holding Group, owned by Novynskyi and business partner Andrei Klyamko, since 2006. Novynskyi was born and raised in Staraya, Russia, and earned his engineering management systems degree in 1985 from the Leningrad Academy of Civil Aviation. He’s lived in Ukraine since 2007 and was granted citizenship in 2012 for his many contributions to the country. Novynskyi now resides in Kyiv.

The Vadym Novynskyi Foundation allocates about 250 million hryvnias annually to humanitarian and community aid focused on medical, social, and faith-based initiatives. Says the foundation’s website: “The mission of the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation is to increase the territory of good, to make the life of our society healthier and better. A big burden is no longer so heavy when hundreds of shoulders are placed under it.

“We firmly believe that there are many people capable of doing good. Relying on our experience, using modern technologies, we create a strong and stable system of mutual assistance, when good-hearted people can help their neighbors with strength for themselves and effectively for the common good, implement socially significant projects.”

Novynskyi believes in giving back. His Smart Holding Group has a 24% stake in iron ore producer Metinvest. In addition, it has significant assets in the shipbuilding, oil, gas, development, and agricultural sectors and controls BM Bank and Unex Bank. Novynskyi also owns stakes in Regal Petroleum and a chain supermarket, Amstor. According to Forbes, his net worth is approximately $1.3 billion.

15.1 Million Hryvnias to Zaporizhzhia Hospitals

The Zaporizhzhia region faces relentless violence and restrictions due to martial law. Medical facilities are overrun with acute emergencies and lack the medical equipment to meet the needs of civilians. Servicepeople, internally displaced persons, and the general public often require round-the-clock treatment for gunshot wounds.

The city council’s executive committee appealed to the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation for help, a company press release reported. Nearly 40% of patients wounded in war require external fixation devices to heal broken bones. The foundation purchased UAH 15.1 million worth of the devices and donated them to the hospitals. These devices will potentially save lives.

“We express our gratitude to Vadym Novynskyi for the provided disinterested help. He perfectly understands all the complexity and danger of the situation in the city due to martial law. This is not the first time when the businesses of Smart Holding Group and his foundation help Zaporizhzhia, the residents of the city, and the region,” said Anatoliy Kurtev, secretary of Zaporizhzhia city council.

The Vadym Novynskyi Foundation had previously responded to the city authorities’ call to provide $500,000 of financial aid to the Zaporizhzhia territorial defense units. Through his foundation, the businessman is helping in any way possible to equip Ukraine with the necessary resources to survive the current conflict.

Other Charitable Donations During the War

Since the war started, the Vadym Novynskyi Foundation has made significant contributions to help victims affected by Russian hostilities. Oleksandr Vilkul, the head of Kryvyi Rih Military Administration, requested and received UAH 17.5 million aimed at stabilizing the Kryvyi Rih community.

In April 2022, another 2 million hryvnias were transferred at the request of the Orthodox monastery Svyatogorsk Lavra. The financial aid was used to provide temporary shelter to refugees, including 200 children and 30 people with disabilities. In addition, the foundation provided the Ukrainian Orthodox Church with UAH 1 million to cater to the poor and complete food deliveries. The church provides hot meals and other necessities to over 800 people daily.

Several initiatives have focused on medical supplies and equipment, including UAH 15 million worth of vacuum therapy devices used in treating serious wounds for the Zaporizhzhia emergency and medical care hospital and city hospital No. 9.

In July, the foundation, in collaboration with the Holy Intercession Monastery, supplied the mayor of Kharkiv with 10 ambulances through the Kharkiv Novinsky City Fund. The ambulances were purchased in European Union countries and will certainly be lifesaving.

“I want to express special thanks to Vadym Novynskyi, his foundation, which does not forget Kharkiv and repeatedly helps the city and our Kharkiv diocese. Today, we are handing over ambulances to the Kharkiv community, which the townspeople are in great need of,” Metropolitan Onufriy, the archbishop of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, commented on the event.
