Ukraine Welcome Message

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”

Henry Ford

Perhaps challenges are sent by the Lord in order that we can check ourselves and truly appreciate those people who are close to us. We realize this so clear now in Ukraine as never before. So, I was extremely proud to be present at the birth of a new foundation – William Novick Global Cardiac Alliance.

Kharkiv Pediatric Heart Surgery team very welcomes the renovated, but very native Bill Novick’s team – the team of high professionals, nice people and our dear friends.

Winston Churchill said: “The only way a man can remain consistent amid changing circumstances is to change with them while preserving the same dominating purpose.” Our purpose is saving children’s lives. Go together toward our goal!
