Bwin remains true to its strategy of supporting vulnerable social groups and eliminating inequalities. Once more, bwin supported the “Brave Children” of ELEPAP, as it delivered the fully reconstructed therapeutic pool, found on the Organization’s facilities in Athens on Wednesday, December 8.

Watch the video:

The delivery ceremony was kept simple and all the necessary sanitary measures were applied. Therapists and members of the Board of Directors of ELEPAP were present, as well as athletes from bwin’s Team Future. Anna Ntountounaki and Apostolos Papastamos, who took part at last summer’s Tokyo Olympics represented Team Future and had the chance to see the facilities of ELEPAP and share the “secrets” of their respective sport with the children, who were being treated at the therapeutic pool.

Therapeutic exercise in the pool is part of ELEPAP’s program. It’s practiced in an aquatic environment and can contribute to the development of motor and functional performance through motion in the water. It aims at the mental adaptation of any child with the aquatic environment, at the modification of the motor behavior in order to acquire balance and the ability to move independently in the water.

Bwin, a benefactor of ELEPAP

At the same time, bwin was named ELEPAP’s benefactor, as it has supported dozens of construction works of crucial importance facilities for the Organization since 2018. Some examples, amongst other important initiatives, are the reconstruction of accessible playgrounds in Ioannina, Chania and Thessaloniki and the construction of sensory integration rooms for children with disabilities and neurodevelopmental problems in Thessaloniki, Volos and ψ.

“Over the past years, we support ELEPAP with all our heart, greatly appreciating the Organization’s work. Delivering the pool for aquatic therapy is another step towards a world, in which the inequalities have no place. A world that we dream about. We thank ELEPAP for naming us as its benefactor. The smiles we see in children’s faces give us the strength to continue our cooperation with initiatives all over Greece in order to help as many children as possible to find their way into life”, added Ioanna Beriou, bwin’s Corporate Communication Director.

Double award for bwin & ELEPAP

Bwin and ELEPAP have received two important awards for their cooperation. The first one was won at the Bravo Sustainability Awards 2021 in the category “Bravo in Action” for the program “bwin supports the Brave Children of ELEPAP” and the second at the “Hellenic Responsible Business Awards 2021” in the category “Cooperation with NGOs” for the program “Bwin supports the Brave Children of Elepap”.
