«Follow your heart till your life goes on» - said the wise men.
Yesterday, April 11, the fourteenth auction "Breath of Life" took place. Annually the charity foundation of Yuri Ten holds this event. Over the years of the auction, 70 million rubles were collected, 80 children from all over the Angara region were sent for treatment to leading medical centers in Russia and the world, 26 units of unique medical equipment were purchased for hospitals in Irkutsk and the Irkutsk Region. Behind this statistics there are thousands of saved little lives.
Sergey Falkin together with other artists, sculptors, stone-carvers and jewelers of the Baikal region, supported the auction by presenting a bronze sculpture “Catcher of omul”. The proceeds from the sale of the work will go to a good cause.
On this spring evening, good and caring hearts gave hope for recovery to seriously ill children by collecting more than 6 million rubles. For these funds, a 3D stereoscopic video system will be acquired for the Center for Surgery of Newborns at the Ivano-Matreninsk Children's Clinical Hospital in Irkutsk to perform surgical operations in children during the first three years of life.
We were glad to have the opportunity to introduce our part in a great good cause!
