Reconstructed playground for children with disabilities at the “Sunce“ Day Care Centre in Prokuplje
Prokuplje, November 04, 2011 – In the residential area of Vodice in Prokuplje, the reconstructed playground of the “Sunce” Day Care Centre for Children and Youth with Disabilities has been ceremonially opened. This is the eighth reconstructed playground within the “Big Heart” humanitarian project, jointly implemented by Eurobank EFG and the “Ana & Vlade Divac” Foundation.
Children with disabilities in the “Sunce“ Day Care Centre now can socialise and play at the reconstructed playground, which has been opened by Nenad Stankovic, Regional Manager in Eurobank EFG, and Vlade Divac, a renowned basketball player and a humanitarian activist. The idea for reconstructing this playground was initiated by Eurobank EFG employees, many of whom applied for an internal contest announced by the Bank, where they had an opportunity to provide their proposals of institutions which might join the ongoing humanitarian activities of Eurobank.“We are honoured to attend the ceremony marking another successful activity within the “Big Heart” project and grant the reconstructed and changed place for playing to the children from the “Sunce“ Day Care Centre. The implementation of this project started in February 2010, in the aim of providing as many children as possible with an opportunity to enrich days of their childhood with socialising in fresh air and physical activity, in an environment which is safe for children with disabilities to play as well,”
said Nenad Stankovic, Regional Manager in Eurobank EFG.
Eurobank EFG and the “Ana & Vlade Divac“ Foundation, under the auspices of the Ministry of Education of the Government of the Republic of Serbia, are the initiators of the “Big Heart” MasterCard affinity credit card. Upon each transaction, including purchasing and cash withdrawals, Eurobank allocates part of its revenues to the “Ana & Vlade Divac” Foundation for reconstructing playgrounds in children’s institutions across Serbia. The more clients opt for the “Big Heart” MasterCard card, the more children in cities of Serbia can share the same joy.
