Today, it also means fighting threats to our very democracy, including cyberhate, bullying, bias in schools and in the criminal justice system, terrorism, hate crimes, coercion of religious minorities, and contempt for anyone who is different.

Our mission is to help cancer patients get access to the most effective treatments available. We want to make sure that cancer patients’ lives depend not on their income or birthplace, but on the progress of modern medicine. We focus on supporting children and adults undergoing treatment in St. Petersburg, Russia or those traveling for treatment abroad. Some patients require stem cell transplants from foreign bone marrow donor registries. Others, with rare and less-studied types of cancer, have to travel for treatment or participation in clinical trials abroad.
We help protect people from malaria. We fund anti-malaria nets, specifically long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs), and work with distribution partners to ensure they are used. We track and report on net use and malaria case data.
