Together, they will raise funds and procure medical supplies for hospitals receiving patients with COVID-19, as well as food for doctors.

“What to do” is a campaign to combat coronavirus infection in Russia. The project brings together the Just Ask About COVID-19 patient reference service, a knowledge base for doctors, and a hospital support program.

What the collaboration will look like. Hospitals submit a request for help on the What to Do website and attach a list of needs. After that, "Not in vain" this list is supplemented in accordance with the checklist developed together by leading Russian intensive care physicians, which must be in intensive care to help patients with COVID-19. “Not in vain” makes an estimate, and then, together with partner funds, distributes efforts to find everything necessary, attract donor companies and raise funds, procurement, logistics, supplies, etc. Thus, the search and acquisition of everything you need will occur more quickly than if the organizations were acting alone.

Zoya Popova, Development Director of the Cancer Prevention Foundation “Not in vain”: “By joining together, charitable organizations that help hospitals and doctors during a pandemic will be able to rationally allocate resources, coordinate activities, and together raise funds in the fight against COVIND-19” and to help those who needs it now."

Ilya Fomintsev, Executive Director of the Cancer Prevention Foundation “Not in vain”: “Now, together with donor companies, we delivered protective materials and equipment to help patients in intensive care to St. Petersburg hospitals with a total cost of about 23.7 million rubles. This is the minimum that doctors need to save coronavirus patients every day. We have done a great job and this is just the beginning. Imagine how much we can do by uniting!"

To ensure the transparency of the work of each of the organizations, the foundations use the site of the "What to do" project, as well as their own media resources, where the organizations' reports and the latest news of the antiquarian campaign are regularly published. The Fund "Not in Vain" regularly publishes news about new hospital supplies as part of the antiquarian campaign on the "What to do" website. In the same place, hospitals in need of assistance can fill out an application and view the checklist for resuscitation.
