Information from event coordinators:
An incredibly generous client has offered us the opportunity to sell their ever-relevant CND Soldiers by Banksy, with 100% of the proceeds going to Ohmatdyt Children’s Hospital in Kyiv, Ukraine. The total money raised from the successful bidder will be sent directly to the hospital. We will also donate the entirety of our commission to the cause and so the print will be sold at a fee rate of 0% to both buyer and seller.
We appreciate your help in getting the best possible price for the work to make a direct impact to the children and wounded at Ohmatdyt. Your contribution to our silent auction shows a willingness to help and understand the significance of the hospital’s case, and demonstrates essential support for Ukraine at this time.

Despite active shelling and air strikes by the Russian Federation, Ohmatdyt specialists continue to remain in Kyiv to protect and treat children, and those wounded, who are being brought to hospital. Thanks to the dedicated work by the hospital, timely medical care is being provided to patients in full capacity and any money raised will ensure that this crucial work can continue.
The full functioning of Ohmatdyt is a matter of national security for Ukraine where it is working to treat all war-affected patients and those children whose lives depend on critical treatment from the hospital. Ohmatdyt is the largest children’s hospital in the country, situated in Kyiv, and is continuing to carry out essential work in the capital as the crisis unfolds. This includes continuing life saving treatment for critically ill children, as well as children and adults wounded by illegal Russian attacks.«Wounded children and adults are now being admitted to Ohmatdyt, and seriously ill patients are being held in shelter for days. Wounded children whose parents were killed in front of them are being brought to us. Elderly people whose homes were destroyed by a rocket are brought to us. Victims of civilians are being brought to us».OHMATDYT HOSPITAL
