The following students of Ternopil State Medical University, Gorbachevskogo: Nazar Stelmach, Gnat Salomiya, Christine Sivak and Lazar Tatiana organized and conducted a charity auction "Give Joy to a Child" which provided moral and material support to the children living in orphanages of the Ternopil region in Ukraine.
The main objective of the auction was fundraising to purchase everyday essential items for the orphans.

The boys and girls posted their photos in albums, and the other participants ran the auction. All students of Ternopil educational institutions were invited to join in the auction.
On behalf of the orphans, we thank all the kind people who contributed to the charity campaign: auction participants, and people who donated money for a good cause. "The Orphans’ Future" campaign supports Ternopil youth and the promotion of philanthropy in its region.
