Summation of pro-family actions in the region – KGHM together with local government representatives work towards developing and initiating projects for the people of the region
Tuesday, 30 June, 2020
Family, cooperation, dialogue - KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. met with representatives of local governments in the Copper Basin of southwest Poland for the purpose of reviewing the numerous pro-family activities in the region and initiating new projects. During the meeting at the Company’s head office in Lubin, amongst the subjects discussed and presented were the results of a poll conducted amongst youth on the ways in which they are dealing with the effects of the pandemic.
The programs discussed included a project carried out this year called „Navigation during the crisis. Protect yourself, support others”. This survey, on the ways of behaving during the crisis, was sent to 21 schools in the municipalities of the Legnica-Głogów Copper Basin. A report with the results of the research was presented to local government representatives. Also discussed during the meeting was a summation of the first part of the mutual campaign „Miedź Rodzinę” on behalf of foster care providers.
Together we can do more, and in the case of our company these are not empty words. This is demonstrated by the actions we have taken and by our cooperation with local communities. We intend to expand and strengthen the programs aimed at children, youth and families. All of this of course in cooperation with the local governments. As a global company we invest in pro-family projects, which provide benefits not only to our employees, but to the entire Copper Basin, says Adam Bugajczuk, Vice President of the Management Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. for Development.
In summarising the actions taken by KGHM in 2019 on behalf of local communities it is worth pointing out that 2 thousand students in the Basin, amongst others, took part in preventative projects and 900 teachers in specialised schools. 1200 family members took advantage of therapy and consultations.
Also presented during the meeting was a new KGHM project, #naMiedzi. In just two weeks the citizens of the Copper Basin along with tourists will be able to utilise a free cell phone application. #naMiedzi allows the user to uncover previously unknown facts and places in the region.
We are developing this project in conjunction with local governments in the Copper Basin. On the one hand we want to show people that the region still holds secrets, but it will also be a great tool for individual and family tourism in this part of Lower Silesia, added Vice President Adam Bugajczuk. Details regarding the inauguration of the #naMiedzi app will be presented in mid-July during a special press conference dedicated to these subjects.
The Management Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has for many years been committed to a policy of sustainable development, cooperating with local governments and supporting their strategic development. KGHM employs people from the local communities, supports cultural events and local athletes through sponsoring and assists local governments, amongst others through the taxes paid by the company.
