Our purpose is to raise funds for charity projects aimed at helping children. As part of the action, the Chance foundation implemented the project "Wanted, Gene-2!" to pay for expensive genetic tests for children with severe neurological, cardiological, endocrinological diseases.

In total, 20 613 rubles were received to the charity account of the fund for the “Wanted Gene-2” project.

Why is “Wanted, Gene-2!”?

In 2018, within the framework of the first “Wanted, Gene!” campaign, the Chance Foundation collected funds and provided assistance in paying for genetic analysis for children with neurological diseases. During the last year we received more than 35 requests asking for payment of an expensive genetic examination for children with various diseases, including cardiological, endocrinological, dermatological disorders. Such a high demand for additional diagnostics led to the expanding of the project.

This year, the funds collected within the project were transferred towards helping the kids: Roman KovalTatyana Maslovskaya,  Miroslav Yakovchik, Dmitry ButkoStanislav MakeyIrina PodorovskayaAndrey Tishalovich.

Who took part in the action and supported the "Wanted, Gene-2!" project?
