Reconstruction of two health centres in Dmytriwka & Hostomel

Dmytriwka and Hostomel are two municipalities in the vicinity of Kyiv. In March and April 2022, they were besieged and much of the community infrastructure was destroyed. Skat Foundation is committed to rebuilding the health centres in these two communities.

For this project, we are working with two of our trusted partner organisations from Ukraine (DESPRO NGO and the Ukrainian Association of Municipalities), which are locally based and nationally networked. Together we have chosen the two communities because the damage there is enormous and because other mechanisms of national and international support do not reach these locations. Access to these areas is safe at the moment and allows the project to be carried out.
With this project, we support the entire population of the two municipalities: adults, children, the elderly and other vulnerable groups. In total, we will be able to rebuild health services for more than 25,000 people and strengthen the resilience of the two municipal governments.

The total budget for this project is of CHF 360,000 – for which we are currently collecting donations from individuals, companies, service clubs, municipalities, cities and cantons. All donations will fully be used to cover the expenses on site throughout the project duration (2022-2023).

Main achievements in 2022


Primary health care centre in Hurivshchyna

The reconstruction of this centre was completed by the end of 2022, thanks to the support of a local actor – the Dynamo Kiev Football Club. The project funds were used for medical equipment, furniture and medical supplies. The outpatient clinic is currently fully functional and provides the full spectrum of health care, serving not only the residents of Hurivshchyna village but also patients from other villages of the Dmytrivka municipality.

4,764 people benefit from the services of the Hurivshchyna clinic.

Health care centre in Shpyt’ky

This health care centre was substantially damaged in March 2022. The local administration, using funds from the municipal budget and private donations, repaired the facility. Upon request of the local authorities, the project will contribute with the insulation of the building and with medical supplies. The construction materials needed for the insulation were purchased in 2022 and works started in March 2023. Meanwhile medical supplies were purchased and delivered. After the insulation work is done, the Shpyt’ky health care centre will be fully functional and able to provide health services to both out- and in-patients. The facility is also planned to be used as a rehabilitation centre for people affected by war.

For this project, Skat Foundation received donations from Swiss citizens and from other local Swiss companies and organisations.

2,294 people benefit from the services of the Shpyt’ky clinic.

Further activities planned for 2023

During the assessment phase of the project in the summer of 2022, additional needs were identified for health care facilities in the sur-rounding of Kiev. One of the most affected municipalities is Hostomel, where two health care facilities will be upgraded and equipped in the coming months, thus improving health services for more than 28,000 people. Skat Foundation will continue raising funds to attend these needs and help the population affected by the war.
