Ukrainian Gift of Life, Inc. (UGoL) programs have been established to fulfill the UGoL ultimate goal of fostering self-sufficiency in the area of pediatric cardiology in Ukraine.

Operation CHILD CARDIO CARE Ukraine (OpCCCareUA):

·         OpCCCareUA is administered in alliance with the CARDIO Foundation and Dr. Mykola Konyk by UGOL program director, Stephanie Andre
