RENOVATED PLAYGROUND BUBAMARA KINDERGARTEN IN VRŠAC
Vršac, 10 October 2018 – Children who attend Bubamara kindergarten in Vršac have been given yet another reason to smile – thanks to the funds raised through the Big Heart affinity card and the namesake project carried out by Eurobank and Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, now have a renovated playground.
New, more interesting and educational equipment has been installed, while the old facilities have been refurbished and made safer for children's play. A total of RSD 1.2 million was allocated for new wooden houses, summer classrooms and the training ground.
“Together with our clients and in cooperation with Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, we have allocated funds through the Big Heart project to set up new equipment in one of the largest kindergartens in Vršac. More than 300 children can now enjoy a new and safe playground while learning through play and preparing for new challenges”, said Magdalena Tatić, Head of Household Lending Division at Eurobank.
The children and the representatives of the local self-government, Čarolija preschool institution in Vršac and Bubamara kindergarten were also greeted by Ana Koeshall, the director of Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, a partner of Eurobank in the project.
“For eight years now, Eurobank and Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation have supported the renovation of playgrounds in schools, preschools and health institutions through the Big Heart project aiming to enhance conditions for the growth and education of children. Our greatest gift is to give them happy childhood”, said Koeshall.
Since 2010, when the Big Heart project was rolled out, Eurobank and Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation have renovated almost 50 playgrounds in kindergartens, as well as a great number of rooms in schools and health institutions where children spend time. The campaign has provided tens of thousands of children across Serbia with a high-quality environment for playing, learning and enjoying a happier childhood.
Card with a big heart – Big Heart MasterCard is a standard credit card, but its ultimate purpose is to provide children in Serbia with better conditions so they can grow up in a carefree environment. Cardholders who opt for this card contribute to an important humanitarian cause by using it – reconstruction of schools and playgrounds and establishment of libraries in preschools and schools throughout Serbia.
