Parimatch Foundation: Sports can and should be available to everyone
People with disabilities from childhood are limited even in what could be quite accessible to them: education, recreation, entertainment, sports. In Ukraine, more and more people are talking about inclusiveness.
This winter, an ice rink was organized in the heart of Kyiv on Bankova Street by the Parimatch Foundation, which became an example of a barrier-free environment for people with special needs.
The skating rink was free for both children and adults, but its main feature was that it was truly inclusive. There were individual classes for children with special needs: together with qualified coaches, children overcame their fears and tried their hand at a new sport. There were also master classes by Ukrainian hockey stars on the rink.
Kateryna Beloruska, President of the Parimatch Foundation, notes that thanks to the skating rink it was possible to give a holiday and faith in a large number of children with special needs, and the foundation established contacts with organizations dealing with inclusion groups.
Parimatch has joined the fundraising platform UNITED24. The company has already provided significant financial assistance and is now joining media support, featuring world sport stars.
