Marina Sedykh’s Charitable Foundation supported more than 320 residents of Ust-Kut in rehabilitation after COVID-19
Marina Sedykh’s Charitable Foundation has become one of the first in Russia to begin providing assistance to patients who have suffered from moderate to severe COVID-19 complications. The program has been in effect since December 2020 and is designed for vulnerable residents of Ust-Kut district - the disabled, the elderly, as well as educators and medical personnel.
Rehabilitation takes place at the Angara multi-profile resort in Irkutsk and at the Eiseira sanatorium in Ust-Kut under a program approved by the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. The rehabilitation course lasts 10-14 days and includes therapy, along with various procedures and consultations with medical professionals.
“Implementation of the rehabilitation program of Marina Sedykh’s Charitable Foundation continues in 2022: the number of former coronavirus patients is growing, and, accordingly, the need for our program remains. This is our priority program and the most expensive of all 11 charitable programs implemented this year,” said the director of the charitable foundation Larisa Bogdalova.
It is worth noting that during the pandemic INK has been actively supporting the health care system. The company supplied hospitals in the Irkutsk region, Krasnoyarsk region, and the Republic of Yakutia with protective equipment for health care professionals, medicines, equipment - ventilators, oxygen concentrators, minilabs for rapid detection of COVID-19, and bronchoscopes.
The company financed the construction of a hospital in Ust-Kut, where COVID-19 patients are now being treated. It can accommodate up to 60 people, with single and double occupancy. There are also three intensive care units in the building - six beds in total for intensive care. The medical building is equipped with modern equipment, its own oxygen station, and medical communication and ventilation systems with decontamination. After the pandemic ends, the hospital will be reassigned to treat other diseases.
