In July 2012 a charity auction was held in the heart of Moscow, established by Elizaveta Glinka, better known as Doctor Liza, founder and executive director of the Doctor Liza’s Fair Care international charitable NGO. This auction was held to help flood victims in Krymsk, where the worst flood in the last 70 years in Krasnodar Krai took the lives of 171 people and damaged the homes of nearly 13,000 families. Anton Abugov purchased several top lots with proceeds benefiting the education of children who were orphaned as a result of this terrible disaster.
After the tragic death of Elizaveta Glinka in a plane crash in December 2016, Ksenia Sokolova, a close friend of Doctor Liza, took the lead of the charitable organization.
Foundation A has continued to lend its support to this organization. In June 2017 Anton Abugov and Ksenia Sokolova, now President of Doctor Liza’s Fair Care, signed an agreement for Mercy Shift, a common charitable project. This project is being executed as part of the Relief for Children Affected by Military Actions and Disasters charitable program sponsored by Doctor Liza’s Fair Care.
Launched in 2015 by Elizaveta Glinka, this program has provided help for more than 500 children.
Anton has covered all costs related to maintaining the Moscow home of the House of Mercy, named after Luka Voyno-Yasenetsky, the primary residence of families displaced from war zones and children undergoing rehabilitation after treatment in Russian medical institutions. Apart from that, the project includes costs for everyday needs and partial reimbursement of medical expenses for children.
As of now, 11 families reside at the House of Mercy.
