Through the first month of the Silver Coin charity project from UkrSibbank, approximately $5,457 was collected to support children with Down Syndrome.
Funding that was collected from the bank will help a Down Syndrome charity implement a training program for teachers so that they can more effectively teach students with this condition. They also provide services to parents and families that include psychological and pedagogical support.
The bank will continue fundraising through the end of March. People can give directly into donation boxes, provide non-cash transfers, order a Silver Card or donate through the charity's website. Bank employees who donate $23 will receive a sticker signifying their contribution.
In 2014, the bank raised $13,643.
