SK Slavia Praha Foundation Programmes
In March of 2023 Football club SK Slavia Prague started together with the organisation of the fans Union of Friends of Slavia “ Slavia Foundation. Friends of Slavia is the biggest fan organisation in the Czech Republic and with its help through 156 branches across the country and with more than 5,000 red and white volunteers, Slavia has the power to provide positive help wherever it is needed across the country.
The foundation has four main pillars – the first is to help healthcare facilities and patients with various health issues, with an emphasis on cancer. This is a matter that affects many people today and every day and touches every one of us. The second is the emphasis on education and sports for young people. Slavia is a sports club with football as its mainstay, and we must therefore not neglect the education of young talent and the importance of sports for their well-being. The third pillar is the protection of the environment, which is a crucial point concerning our future. The last part that we must not forget is natural disasters and emergencies that may occur. We will help wherever there is an actual need.
Donor and Slavia Prague Collaboration
The donor is an organisation which provides support and psychosocial assistance to patients after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and/or serious acute and chronic diseases, their families and medical staff.
University Hospital Motol has been cooperating with the players of Slavia and the club itself for twenty years, the first football players came to patients around 2003. The cooperation then developed further and in 2011 was founded the DONOR Association, which will be formalized not only for the interaction with Slavia and other partners but also with the patients themselves. Throughout this time Slavia has been cooperating with donors in many different ways from players and club representatives visiting patients regularly, financial aid to the association, special events in support such as stuffed animals fundraiser for donors and proudly wearing the logo of the Donor association on the back of our Jersey.
Using the power of football and Slavia to make wishes come through for the less fortunate in life. As a project, the main goal is to provide joy for the people who have to deal with unexpected complications in life and share their stories with the wide network of Slavia fans and partners. The idea is to through our effort their story will get heard and will inspire others to help out.
