Svetlana Shapochnik at the concert ‚Äď June 9th
We would like to remind you that this March the girl‚Äôs diagnosis of retinoblastoma was confirmed and since the beginning of June Daniella‚Äôs parents have been corresponding with German clinics which specialize in such cancer cases. Daniella, with her parents is going to travel to Essen (Germany) for treatment, which might cost up to 20, 000 euros ($28,509 US dollars). Thanks to kind-hearted countrymen, the bank account of Daniella‚Äôs father received 51,000 hryvnyas (4,469 euros; $6,373 US dollars). The fund-raising campaign for Daniella Rudenko‚Äôs treatment is still on-going.
The idea of holding this charity concert came from our well-known countrywoman, a famous folk singer and a soloist of the National Radio of Ukraine, Svetlana Shapochnik. After the phone conversation with the father of Daniella Rudenko, Svetlana invited the family to join her project, ‚ÄúChild‚Äôs Hopes‚ÄĚ Charity Foundation (in Russian), and its members, her colleagues from the Orihiv region. The concert participants were prize winners of republic and regional competitions, including Olga Kotlyar, a button accordion player and virtuoso Michail Romanyuk, and the theatre chorographic school of modern dance ‚ÄúTandem‚ÄĚ by Tatiana Ivanets.
