Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease that is spreading rapidly all over the world. The USA and almost all of the countries in Europe have already faced the disease. The number of infected people is growing every day. The government of Ukraine decided to quarantine almost all of the cities to protect people’s health. Kharkiv quarantines since the 12th of March.

Together with Kharkiv IT Cluster, you have the opportunity to help our region. You can take part in the project IT4Life. As a part of the project, Kharkiv IT-companies help the city and the region by financing medical equipment and other supplies acquisition in case people are infected.

You may have already heard about a fierce fire that happened in the Dvorichanskyi district. Several villages were damaged, houses burned down, and people lost everything.

Our colleagues have been helping on their own for several days on-site:

  • feeding the firefighters at their own expense, 200 people a day;
  • helping people with housing;
  • feeding locals, and much more.

Several IT CEOs have already supported the initiative.
