Owners of a Lviv dental clinic have become Chums of the Holodomor Museum, having made a charitable contribution to create its exhibition. The Holodomor Museum, currently being built on the Dnieper slopes in Kyiv, is implemented on the basis of public-private partnership: construction of the building is funded by the State and its content — the main exhibition — is being produced through charitable contributions.
Lviv clinic Dental Care was the first to join the fundraiser for the National Holodomor Museum Phase II construction. The clinic owners chose them one of the charity packages and made their contribution, which gave them the status of Chums of the Holodomor Museum.
Sofiya Siarkevych, dentist and owner of the dental clinic, explains why she decided to support creation of the Holodomor Museum exhibition:
“The Holodomor Museum Foundation is doing a very important thing for the Ukrainian society and the Ukrainian nation. My family and I, in particular my colleagues here at the clinic, thought that it was possible to start a kind of relay and involve my fellow dentists who feel that they care and want to join such an important project.”
Myron Uhryn, Honoured Doctor of Ukraine, a practising implantologist dentist, President of the National Union of Dentists of Ukraine, was the first to support the idea of joining the project to create the Holodomor Museum exhibition.
Mrs Siarkevych adds:
“I am convinced that we, dentists, will be able to support creation of the Holodomor Museum exhibition, as well as make our charitable contribution. Friends and colleagues, let us never forget, and step up the memory of those who were starved to death by the Stalinist regime.”
How to become a benefactor for the Holodomor Museum exhibition?
The Holodomor Museum Creation Project aims to spread philanthropy values and charity traditions among Ukrainian and international communities as wide as possible. On 18 December 2021, the Lviv National Opera is hosting a big benefit night What Perished Is To Rise Again. It will unite benefactors who contribute to creating the exhibition of the future Holodomor Museum.
Despite all the challenges of today, we are creating a common space where the voice of each of us and the action by each of us is an absolute necessity. For this we have set up the Road to Truth fund-raising campaign. It offers opportunities to support creation of the Holodomor Museum exhibition for private and corporate benefactors whose contributions will be crucial for the creation of the novel integral museum complex.
The campaign determines 4 charity packages. Every Road to Truth campaign benefactor will be honoured in the Museum’s future space as:
Holodomor Museum’s Co-creators
The benefactors who will make private or corporate contributions between USD 1 mln and USD 10 mln would be honoured with nameplates in the respective hall (which is created at the benefactor’s expense) and also in the Gratitude Space of the Entrance Hall as the Museum’s Co-creators.
Holodomor Museum’s Partners
The benefactors who will make private or corporate contributions between USD 250,000 and USD 1 mln would be honoured in the Gratitude Space of the Entrance Hall as the Museum’s Partners.
Holodomor Museum’s Friends
The benefactors who will make private or corporate contributions between USD 25,000 and USD 250,000 would be honoured in the Gratitude Space of the Entrance Hall as the Museum’s Friends.
Holodomor Museum’s Pals
The benefactors who will make private or corporate contributions between USD 1,000 and USD 25,000 would be honoured in the Gratitude Space, on the outer wall of the Cinema Hall, which is one of the Holodomor Museum’s main public spaces intended for the institution’s image-building events, film screenings, lectures, press conferences, presentations, etc.Share
