Charity has always been a great tradition for Russian nobility. Helping people in distress has become one of Foundation A’s focus areas. Large contributions have been made to increase the quality of life for people affected by unfortunate life circumstances or natural disasters. Foundation A participates in philanthropic events and charity auctions as well as provides targeted donations. Anton Abugov helped many cancer patients — both adults and children — with personal donations covering all costs of operations, therapy and rehabilitation. Significant donations were made to help people who lost their close ones, shelters and property during a dreadful fire in Nizhny Novgorod Region.
