The Children's Hope
A social initiative launched at the end of 2018 by Kyivstar together with the Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace, international charity foundation. The project aims at helping children with heart defects and cancer. Kyivstar allows its subscribers to transfer funds to the charity quickly and conveniently via texts.
The funds raised under the Children's Hope help to provide children's cancer and heart health centres with modern medical equipment, medical supplies, tools, and promptly repair existing equipment.
During this initiative, donations of Kyivstar subscribers made via texts helped to purchase equipment for more than a dozen children's heart and cancer centres in four regions of Ukraine: Kyiv, Dnipro, Lviv, and Odesa.

The project is implemented in partnership with the Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace (UPM). The foundation has monitored children's medical institutions in Ukraine and is well aware of their actual needs. The funds that subscribers donate via texts are tax exempt. 100% of donations are transferred to the UPM for project implementation. The UPM purchases all the necessary materials for hospitals independently, so you can be sure that the funds are used as intended. You can see reports on the fund utilization on the UPM website here.
