Inter Campus’s trip to Romania started in Slatina, where the team met up with Pirelli Romania CEO Davide Meda and other managers at the offices of the production plant to get a progress update on the project. The team hosted training sessions and handed out shirts to the children involved in the project, before playing a series of friendly matches.
Next to the Romanian capital, Bucharest, where a joint project with Parada continues. It centres around the San Marcellino children’s home, which cares for around 30 children. It was set up by Marist brothers and is run by social educators. As well as children associated with the local authorities, the project involves another 15 from schools in the same neighbourhood.
The three Inter Campus centres in Ramnicu Valcea run regular activities on their respective football pitches. Inima Pentru Inima representative Lidia Dobre, local coordinator Alin Matei and second coach Andrey ensure that this takes place.
A cold, wet Sunday did not stop us from having a wonderful day in the gym, using sport as tool of inclusion. Ukrainian children who were being hosted at a centre in the small commune of Calinesti took part in the recreational tournament with the Inter Campus teams, which were made up of children currently being cared for by our local partners.
