Ukrainian WIM Galina Shliahtich

Hello Everyone,

For all those who play online at known popularly as ICC, there is an ICC SOS Charity Simul coming up.

Ukrainian WIM Galina Shliahtich, whose health has recently worsened due to multiple sclerosis and tuberculosis, is in need of help.

And this coming weekend of Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th October, two of ICC's most active Ukrainian Grandmasters, Yuri Vovk (Imperator15) and Valeriy Aveskulov (Prokuror), along with Argentinian IM Alejo de Dovitiis (dedo2) will be generously giving their time by holding fund raising events on ICC to help contribute to Galina's mounting medical costs.

Participation in either simul or Play the Master events requires a donation of at least 20 chekels, but any donation would be greatly appreciated, even if you do not plan to participate. For the schedule and information on how to contribute to the fund, you can check here.

GM Mikhail Golubev is also helping her so you can contact him here.
