The Circle of Kindness Foundation to support children with serious diseases to broaden its activities due to a government order


The Circle of Kindness Foundation is now allowed to form a reserve of medicines and medical devices. The corresponding resolution was signed by Mikhail Mishustin, Russia’s Prime Minister.

“The decision will allow the Foundation to purchase medicines and medical devices for a longer period and create the necessary stock to be used for immediate assistance to patients,” the report says.

It is noted that the same decree allows to procure medicines and devices from a wider range of countries.

The Circle of Kindness Foundation was established in 2021 at the President of Russia’s initiative. Earlier, during the conference “Social Partnership in the interests of children with serious illnesses” in the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, Alexander Tkachenko, the chairman of the Board of the Foundation, said that the Circle of Kindness was able to provide medicines to almost 5,000 children with severe and orphan diseases.

As it became known earlier, in 2022, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of the Russian Federation helped the Circle of Kindness Foundation to reduce the cost of purchased medicines by 40%.
