«Silver coin»: the energy of the family is the future of the child
UKRSIBBANK BNP Paribas Group together with the All-Ukrainian charitable organization «Down Syndrome» is launching the annual charity campaign «Silver Coin».
Despite the chalanges of modern realities, UKRSIBBANK continues to help those who is in need and supports long-term charitable projects.
This year, from September 19 to December 19, together with the charitable organization «Down Syndrome», we are launching a fund-raising project to provide psychological support to the families of children with Down syndrome in Ukraine during the martial law. The collected funds will be used to provide families with qualified psychological assistance so that they have opportunities to restore their internal resources and continue to develop their children. Individual or group online and offline psychological consultations are organized for parents from different regions of Ukraine.
«This year’s slogan «Energy of the family is the future of the child» was chosen for a reason. The upbringing and development of children with Down syndrome requires the emotional stability of parents. We understand how difficult it is in today’s conditions to find the strength and give it to children. The break in development can lead to the loss of those achievements that parents achieved day after day with hard work and dedication. We have been supporting this charitable initiative for many years. Only in the last 5 years, together with our clients, we have collected more than 1 million hryvnias. We believe that with joint efforts we are creating a future for them.» – said Yanina OLHOVSKA, Director of Communications, CSR and Engagement at UKRSIBBANK BNP Paribas Group.
«The bank’s support for our initiative this year is very important for the entire parent community of families raising children with Down syndrome. This is true – recovery of parents’ resources is extremely necessary in these conditions, when children’s development depends on them even more than usual, when access to specialists is limited or impossible. We know that regular activities with children is the only way to support their development potential, which will help them to grow up prepared for independent life. We believe that the planned support measures will benefit those who will become participants in our project.» – said Tetiana PAVLYUK, Vice-President of the «Down Syndrome» Charitable Organization
