Why us?

Against immunodeficiency and for a life lived at full!

The Sunflower Foundation was created in 2006 by the famous Russian director Timur Bekmambetov and costume designer Varya Avdiushko. We use wide opportunities and rich resources of artistic and cultural environment to combat primary immunodeficiency. Many stars of Russian culture and art are good friends, ambassadors and trustees of our foundation. They do not miss the opportunity to come down from the sky in hospital wards to give children a bit of light and heat.  We make of creation and art not only a tool to raise funds but also a remedy for social and psychological isolation of a little human.


The Sunflower Foundation’s activities are aimed at addressing the major challenges associated with PID:

 - FUNDRAISING for treatment of patients and their life support

 - SOCIAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL AND LEGAL SUPPORT to young patients and their families

 - SUPPORT and EVOLUTION of isolated children aimed at the full personal fulfillment and self-actualization.

 - RAISING AWARENESS of PID in public and medical communities; increasing early diagnosis of PID


By helping us, you are making an invaluable contribution not only to the destinies of small "Sunflowers", but to the lives and futures of many people all over Russia!
