Charity actions

With high priority attached to social welfare issues, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation is actively involved in addressing healthcare issues in the projects it undertakes. Stretching the helping hand to children and teenagers from children homes and boarding houses, as well as children from martyr, refugee, internally displaced and low-income families is among the Foundation’s major duties.

Following the Foundation’s initiative, blood drive campaigns were held on a regular basis in both the capital city and the countryside, followed by surgeries for children affected by cardiac insufficiency and cleft lip, medical examination of children from low-income families and other events of this kind.

In December of 2010, the Foundation presented a “Sobol” ambulance furnished with special equipment to the child onco-hematology center of the regional clinical hospital N1 in Yekaterinburg.

In 2011, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation provided financial support to the Rostropovich-Vishnevskaya Foundation to implement the “Pregnant Women’s Hepatitis B and HIV Diagnosis and Newborn Infants Prophylaxis of Hepatitis B Virus” Program by the Rostropovich-Vishnevskaya Foundation.

On June 14, 2012, an ambulance provided with special blood transfusion and small laboratory and 2000 blood transfusion packs were presented, on behalf of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, to the Hamza Charitable Foundation, which includes several hospitals dealing with cure of children suffering from thalassemia, hemophilia and blood cancer.
