"We decided to appeal to the power of art again. Our first auction "Art that saves" gathered more than 5 mln. UAH. for the treatment and rehabilitation of 50 soldiers of Ukrainian army. Some of them are present in our auction. Also here came the benefactors who participated in our previous auction, and made their contribution to the treatment of our soldiers, giving them the ticket to a new life. This time children from art schools also joined our initiative. They turned boxes for ammunition to the piece of art. The boxes were brought from the front line. Well-known artists also participated in the project. All funds raised at the auction will be donated to a humanitarian mission ", - said chairman of Oschadbank Andrey Gingerbread.
