In fall 2015, our Charitable Foundation launched a children’s sports project entitled Healthy Future within the framework of the sports development program in Ukraine. After all, sport is health!
Do you agree with us?
Within the framework of the project, we organized and held a ten-day sports meeting in the hotel-sports complex HOTEL POLONEZ, located in Debics (Poland) for the children’s football team from Volodymyrivka (Donetsk region). The Village Council appealed to us to arrange sports meetings for children so that they could again relax from the horrors of war and recall what football and team play were. So, the plan of the event was agreed with the leadership of the sports and hotel complex and the stage of preparation of documents has come. There was also no difficulty, which even more excited the desire to carry out this event.
Thanks to the full support of Polish colleagues, in particular, Mr. Edward Brzostovsky, Mr. Marian Dibowski, the owner of the Hotel Polonez complex, Mr. Boguslaw Bober and the head of this institution, Mr. Stanislav Bachinsky, the Keremprom company and, personally, its Director General Boris Fedorovich Bevzenko, we were able to organize this event in a very short time, get the children’s passports for the players and find funding. Also, invaluable support and assistance was provided by the embassy of the Republic of Poland in Ukraine, thanks to which short-term Schengen visas were painted just a week after applying to the embassy in the passports of the participants.
While in Poland, children were able to practice on their own football field and in a large sports hall, visited 50-meter !!! olympic swimming pool, visited an excursion tour in an ancient and very beautiful city
Krakow and showed their athletic skills during a friendly football match with a Polish team from the town of Pustkov.
Although the Polish team won in this match (the game ended with a score of 2: 1), this did not cause a deterioration of the mood!
Our boys began to train even harder and promised to play again next time!
The trip seemed interesting, fun and made it possible for children to get acquainted with Poland and get a lot of positive emotions!
