At the moment, there is nothing more important for Ukraine than to protect its lands. The country, however, has to fight on two fronts: another insidious enemy does not stop attacking our citizens – COVID-19. We have already lost about 105,000 Ukrainians to COVID-19, and the number of COVID-related deaths is growing. Ukraine’s health care system is vulnerable and needs global support.
Recently, Lviv has become a huge, well-organized volunteering hub where thousands of refugees have received a safe haven. The concentration of so many people from different regions has increased the risk of spreading the virus tenfold. In practice, quick tests help to keep the situation under control, which gives results in just a few minutes.
The company’s internal charitable fund has been operating since the first days of the full-scale invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine has already raised more than UAH 1,400,000. Many of Binariks clients are working in the health care industry. One of the clients, Ron Gutman, CEO of Intrivo, with whom Binariks has been cooperating for over a year, decided to help.
Understanding the urgent needs of Ukrainians, leaders of Intrivo decided to donate About 100,000 rapid COVID-19 tests On/Go to hospitals and various clinics.
A donation worth $1 million is just the beginning. Ron Gutman, like other businessmen in the US healthcare industry, wants to continue to help our healthcare system. “Of course, the United States and the world, international organizations, and giant companies support Ukraine, but a country suffering from military aggression lacks more than just weapons or money. Ukraine needs medication and modern medical equipment at least”, says Gutman.
Ron came here to learn about the problems of Ukrainian doctors and to hear their voices in person. He wants to gather inquiries and information about the needs of hospitals so that he can bring even more targeted help next time by attracting and uniting the efforts of other businessmen, philanthropists, and investors.
It is necessary and even pleasant to help those who help: Binariks representatives met Ron in Poland and helped to cross the border as quickly as possible. The company also undertook communication with government agencies, agreeing on the list of hospitals that need tests, meeting logistics, and other organizational works.
By the way, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Intrivo’s On/Go test as one of the first and most accurate rapid tests for COVID-19 antigen. On/Go tests deliver results with over 90% accuracy in just 10 minutes. Some more useful facts:
Binariks get support from clients all the time. One of the client transferred more than € 50,000 to the urgent needs of our state at the beginning of the war. Such positive experiences inspire other companies to do charity. Binariks continues to operate and deliver high-class services to the clients, believing this is the only way to revive and restore Ukraine’s economy.
