We can and we care! And we said NO to the social exclusion of people with disabilities
Yes, the19th of December was a great night in Kavala, where Energean’s Prinos producing assets are located. Energean – Kavala BC, a basketball team competing in the 2018-2019 A2 Basketball League Championship, and Friends played wheelchair basketball chairs with A.O. Kavala Wheelchair Basketball Club.
Energean CEO Mr. Mathios Rigas along with other Company officials, participated in the game, the proceeds of which were donated to A.O. Kavala Wheelchair Basketball Club.
It was a privilege that Metropolitan Stefanos of Neapolis, Filippoi and Thasos threw the game jumpball!
Playing against the Wheelchair Basketball Team was really hard, but we enjoyed it and so did our fellow citizens in Kavala, as the event was attended by a massive audience.
Energean - Kavala BC also played two more games: one with its basketball academies and another with well known citizens of Kavala who also wanted to convey a strong message against social exclusion.
We were more than happy to honour three great athletes from Kavala. Makis Nikolaidis, a basketball player who is still active at the age of 40 as well as Anthi Karagianni and Alexandra Dimoglou, two ladies who have won dozens of medals representing Greece in the Paralympic games .
We also established a crowdfunding project the proceeds of which will be allocated towards the needs of the Kavala School of Special Vocational Education and Training (the Kavala EEEEK), at Nea Karvali, Kavala, Greece.
The purpose of the fundraising is the creation of a multi-sensory room for students in the autism spectrum, as well as for children with learning difficulties, hyperactivity or other neurological development disorders.
The room is called Snoezelen Therapy Room - Room of Multi-Sensory Treatment.
In the context of this effort, we managed to raise more than 8,000 euros and we would like to thank everyone who participated!
We serve United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals and we will work for zero social exclusion of any disabled person.
Because WE CAN and WE CARE!
