Some of the funding will also be used for family support and to provide families with access to qualified psychological, medical and educational services and professionals.
 
"It's nice that Silver Coin supports both bank employees and customers. They can often hear words of gratitude for the opportunity to contribute to the support of children with Down syndrome," BNP Paribas Group  Deputy Chairman of Retail Business Konstantin Lezhnin said. "The results of the action ... the charity has become a real trend in Ukraine."
