«Together for Life» – the company «FITOFARM» sponsored the opening of a free pre-abortion consulting room

Behind an unremarkable door of the typical room No. 137 in the Consultative and Diagnostic Center of the Desnyansky District of Kiev, the real miracles are happening. Here they save the lives of unborn babies and save moms from a fatal mistake, provide comprehensive assistance to women in a crisis situation.

He has no gentle name. Usually it is a «problem», «burden», «unwanted pregnancy». A kid doomed by his parents or circumstances. As a rule, for him there is no one to intercede.

«The life of every person is invaluable», we are convinced in the company «FITOFARM», and therefore we sponsored the project «For Life», initiated by the public organization «All-Ukraine».

As part of this project, it is planned to open pre-abortion consulting rooms, preventive lectures, courses for high school students and many other introductions that will help increase fertility and strengthen marriages.

However, an unborn child is not the only affected party. According to psychologists, mothers who made the decision to have an abortion, subsequently spend many years, and sometimes their whole life on rehabilitation from a severe psychological state – post-abortion syndrome (PAS).

In pre-abortion consulting room, qualified psychologist will tell about all the consequences of an abortion, which are silenced or not taken into account. And most importantly, the specialist will try to convey to women that abortion is not the only solution and any situation can be considered in favor of saving the child’s life.

In the room will help not only in word but in deed. In addition to free psychological counseling, if necessary, expectant future mothers will be provided with legal, social and even material support.

The doors of this room are open to everyone, regardless of place of residence.

If necessary, just knock on this door. Or tell about it to those who are in front of a difficult choice.

The more women receive support from the project, the more young Ukrainians will be born, and their mothers will save health and experience the happiness of motherhood.

Reception time of the psychologist Lilia Sibir: Wednesday from 9.30 to 11.30.

«For the will to win»: the company «FITOFARM» supported Children’s and youth sports school for the disabled «Chance»

«Catch a wave» of good deeds! In June 2019, our company attended a training session on swimming of Children’s and youth sports school for the disabled «Chance». At the request of our partners and friends from the charity foundation «Your Future», we bought and brought gifts for the most numerous branch of the school — swimming training equipment: flippers and goggles.

It is difficult to imagine that among children and teenagers, whom relatives bring to training often in wheelchairs, there are owners of proud champion titles.

All these medals were won by small athletes of Children’s and youth sports school for the disabled «Chance», who without any discounts on their health, compete with rivals in competitions. Each victory at the Paralympic Games is a page of a person’s personal courage.

Yes, it is oh so hard! To challenge fate, we need strength of spirit, endurance, iron will. Sometimes even an adult and a physically healthy person does not have enough determination to go in for sports. Now imagine how much persistence is necessary for children with disabilities, because even ordinary life is hard and full of obstacles for them.

In Kiev, there are now more than 50,000 children with disabilities, but only 1,500 of them have the opportunity to engage in sports facilities.

Children’s and youth sports school for the disabled «Chance» was opened in September 2015. During this period, pupils of the school repeatedly became winners and prize-winners of the Paralympic and Deflympic games, championships and World Cups, Europe and Ukraine.

Currently, in Children’s and youth sports school for the disabled «Chance» works 6 sports departments (Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling, cross-country skiing and biathlon, athletics, powerlifting, swimming, orienteering), in which 150 pupils with disabilities, with defects of hearing, vision and intelligence, lesions of the musculoskeletal system are engaged.

Of course, not all disabled athletes become champions. But for many of them, it is not victory that is important, but sport itself, which is an effective means of maintaining health. When people with disabilities start exercising, they get out of depression, strengthen their faith in life and find a new social circle, make friends.

We are very glad that we were able to help such a special school, met wonderful guys and their caring coaches, saw children’s smiles and returned with a sense of pride in small and so strong-minded athletes.

The company «FITOFARM» wishes for large and small pupils of the Children’s and Youth Sports School «Chance» good health and new brilliant victories!

“Hand over to grandchildren…”

Victory Day … What do these familiar two words hide? Too much… For those who have gone through the crucible of war, these are heart-rending memories, tears, smells, hunger, dandelions on the sides of broken roads, front-line songs and a special feeling of joy mixed with the bitterness of loss.

And for many employees of the FITOFARM company, this day is filled with gratitude to the veterans and those who gave his life for the Victory, to their great feat. Memory, respect and attention – this is the least that we can give heroes, the number of which are getting smaller.

In 2019, we not only supported the annual tradition of memory in the company, but also supplemented it by visiting combatants of the Second World War fighting in the city of Kiev.

VISITING VETERANS

“Everything was burning and rumbling around. We fled to the attack, stepping on the bodies of dead comrades…”

“At the age of 12 I went to the partisans. In a hurry, the whole village was driven into 4 sheds and set on fire…”

“To dream, of course, dreamed. Everyone had their own dreams. I dreamed of bread… “

“It was hard, very hard. Cried. It was scary. I wanted to live very much. Not everyone could overcome the feeling of fear… “.

“I survived the Siege of Leningrad. And my family is not. No one left… “

“When we entered the bombed-out city, chaos reigned there – people sat on the ground or wandered among the ruins in search of a piece of bread. There are no whole houses left … ”

“In the concentration camp they did not feed at all, there was no clean water. Ate snow. Nobody survived on hard work for more than a month… ”.

“I got out of the burning tank through the hatch in the bottom. It is very scary when a padded jacket is burning on you and burning gasoline is pouring from above. And it is impossible to crawl out from under the tank – the Nazis will shoot… ”.

That is how the very young girls and boys remembered the War, in whose fate World War II broke out. They were then only 15-18 years old.

They shared their memories with the «FITOFARM» employees who came to visit them with gifts. The combatants of the War talked about their military path, about the terrible ordeals that fell to the people during the War years.

The “FITOFARM” employees thanked the veterans for their feat, because with incredible efforts they restored the destroyed land, because we, their grandchildren and great-grandchildren, live in a free country and wished them good health and longevity.

The veterans were very pleased to see us, many had tears in their eyes. In turn, they thanked the company “FITOFARM” for the attention and care.

We congratulate the veterans (Kiev): 

And of course, we traditionally visited veterans in hometown of our production.

We congratulate the veterans (Bakhmut):

MEMORY WATCH

Victory Day on May 9 is a day of tribulation, scarlet flowers, the memory of soldiers who died for their homeland … Guys, sleep well … You will rest in peace … We remember you.

Also on May 9, this year, Sales force team of “FITOFARM” company commemorated at the Monuments of glory in different cities of Ukraine: Kharkov, Odessa, Kiev, Vinnytsia, Zaporozhye, Dniepr and Mariupol.

Victory Day binds generation for 74 years to the memory of hard time. Many employees of the company came with their children to honor the fallen soldiers, and therefore there is no doubt that the memory of the human feat will also be carefully kept in the hearts of young Ukrainians.

Visiting NUPhU: «FITOFARM» met students

Oh, and this is not an easy task to choose your first job! Should I start in a pharmacy? Should I try in pharmaceutical promotion? Perhaps can I do research? Or should I give preference for the medicines manufacturing? Sooner or later every graduate finds himself or herself at crossroads. We wanted to help future pharmacists to decide on their main choice in life.

«We build a career together» – career days were held with participation of FITOFAM and students of the National University of Pharmacy in Kharkiv.

Our company made presentation to students, presenting them the manufacturing site and the company as a whole, open vacancies, career prospects and social package for employees. In turn, students asked questions about the possible employment.

Such events are very useful for both students and employers: they help young professionals without experience to get a decent job, and employers to make sure that their choice is correct.

The doors of «FITOFAM» are always open for active and talented applicants of all ages, ready to learn new things and implement interesting and promising projects.

Good luck, graduates!

From the very morning of May 31st, the streets of cities and towns change when elegant dressed boys and girls appear. On this day, students can be recognized from afar. Almost everyone has bouquets of lilacs, peonies or irises in their hands. The sounds of waltzes flow from the schoolyards and the sound of a bell can be heard. But some of the students are especially serious. They are dressed with silk ribbons as a sign that they came to their school for the last time.

Another school year is behind. The same fervent and slightly sad last bell was also heard in our sponsored school No. 3 of the city of Bakhmut (formerly boarding school No. 1).
“I still remember today’s graduates with funny first-graders with bows and naughty whirlwinds, many of them grew up before our eyes,” shares his impressions, Andrei Bondarchuk, Acting Chief Technologist and an active participant in the charitable projects of the FITOFARM in our hometown. – Today they go to an independent life. Let them be lucky! ”

 

  

The company “FITOFARM” took patronage over this educational institution more than 15 years ago, regularly helping the school from month to month, from year to year. With the purchase of sports equipment, educational games, computers, a projector and, of course, sweet gifts for children’s holidays and other good deeds, we help to make a difficult life for pupils better, simpler, more joyful.

On the day of the last call, the employees of FITOFARM presented the graduates with wrist watches that will be useful in their future independent life, and all schoolchildren received sweets.

In addition, this year FITOFARM allocated funds for the stay of 30 students of the school in the summer school camp.

In turn, the students delighted all the participants of the festival with wonderful creative performances and presented our company with a cheerful amulet made hand. For us, this is a truly expensive gift, because warm feelings and a piece of children’s soul are embedded in its creation.

Joy and sadness, smiles through tears, bright flowers, satin bows and ribbons … The celebration was official and touching at the same time.

The graduates will have a new stage in their life and namely final exams, which will allow them to fulfill the dream to study at the chosen higher education institution and continue their life path.

Light endeavors to you, successful accomplishments, a peaceful sky and a bright future!

Production team awarded trip to “Blue Lakes”

Feel how it smells? We haven’t started the story yet and from this article it immediately blew a fresh breeze with the smell of a nearby pond! And this quiet splash of a pacified wave, warm sand between fingers and a light breeze, scattering sun glare on the surface of blue water… Is this not real happiness! 

The phrase “let’s go on a picnic” could make wonders! Delicious food in the fresh air, picking up mushrooms, active games on the beach, gentle sun, bright foliage, a sea of smiles – all these components are so requested on the canvas.

Not surprisingly, picnics often inspired great artists. “Hunters at rest” by Perov, “Picnic” by James Tissot and Claude Monet, “Family Picnic” by Pirosmani and the scandalous “Breakfast on the Grass” by Eduard Manet … At one time went on a picnic the heroes of Chekhov and Dickens, Mr. Bean, Tom and Jerry, Catherine and Gosha from the movie “Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears”…

Recently, this list of lucky was added with the production team of “FITOFARM” in the amount of 62 people, including members of their families. A place for Saturday’s rest was a picturesque lake with the alluring name “Blue Lakes”. This location was chosen for a reason.

A bit of geography and a drop of history:

“Blue Lakes” are man-made quarries for the extraction of quartz sand (yes, the very one from which are made bricks and tiles). During the mining process, the mines were filled with ground and spring waters. Clean and clear water along with white sand creates the effect of “blue water”, which gave the name to the lakes.

And the reason was not long in coming. The Bakhmut team received a trip to the “Blue Lakes” as a gift in gratitude for the done hard work and for the implementation of the production plan!

In turn, the production team expressed sincere gratitude to the management for organizing such an excellent trip.

The weather was very pleased – the sun and warmth. They say that a good picnic is equivalent to a short vacation. And really, everyone was having fun, relaxing, listening to good music – the charge of general positive was so great that even random clouds could not resist the general fun.

The trip to the “Blue Lakes” was a success and once again showed that we are united not only by work, but also by the ability to have a good rest.

Let the charge of solar energy received by you inspire you to new achievements!
