To whom we have helped

“Thanks to VÍTKOVICE STEEL endowment fund we could purchase ROOMER portable overhead lift designed for lifting and transporting immobile persons between rooms (bedroom, toilet, central bathroom) and during certain movements (such as transfer from bed to wheelchair and back). This substantially improved the quality of social service rendered to our clients. The work with this transport and lifting system requires far less physical effort than the work with classical lifts for immobile persons.”

“Private Elementary School for Multi-handicapped Pupils obtained a donation in the amount of CZK 49,876 from VÍTKOVICE STEEL endowment fund under the People from Steel Help programme. The school will use the money to build a new children’s playground in its premises improving the offer of leisure activities for the pupils. It is an assembly of tower with slide and rope. The “Playhouse” will induce children to exercise and improve their movement coordination when playing there. We all look forward to our “Playhouse” and thank to VÍTKOVICE STEEL endowment fund and the VÍTKOVICE STEEL employee whose generosity enabled us to implement the project. 
All VÍTKOVICE STEEL employees help.”

“A donation from VÍTKOVICE STEEL endowment fund under the People from Steel Help programme enabled us to purchase a polikarp construction set in the value of CZK 34,000 for our nursery school located at 23 Erbenova Street in Ostrava-Vítkovice. The acquired construction set will be used by us for a number of both controlled and spontaneous activities. Now we use different parts of it in physical training exercises. Various assemblies can be made of it including a small slide supporting the development of gross motor skills and physical dexterity of children. Children improve their sense of logic and spatial orientation during spontaneous games using the construction set.”
