Mariupol Has Got Its Own Pinery

27 November 2013

Mariupol realized one more – twelfth project, which became a winner of a corporate social competition “City by our hands” of Metinvest Group. On November 26 a pine-tree nook was opened at the territory of regional oncological specialized clinic: 100 pine trees and junipers were planted at the center of the city.

The main purpose of the social competition offered to Mariupol inhabitants is to make our city more comfortable due to the initiative of its inhabitants and financial support of Metinvest companies.

 Originally, it was Sergey Voloshin, Head Doctor of  the oncological clinic, who came up with the idea of improvement and arrangement of green spaces: “The idea was to put in order the clinic territory, to add some comfort for our patients to be able to have rest in a nice environment after difficult treatment and manipulations, to sit on benches in a pinery in the center of the city. A pinery opening for gravely ill patients demonstrates once again a high level of social responsibility of Metinvest companies for city inhabitants”.

 After winning the competition  this year medical personnel got a 50 ths UAH grant for their idea implementation from Metinvest. And now the municipal oncological clinic area is decorated with one hundred young pine tree plants and juniper bushes. Moreover, new benches were mounted for visitors comfort.

 “METINVEST GROUP invested one million two hundred thousand hryvnas for social significant projects of people of Mariupol for two years of carrying-out of a social partnership program “City by our hands”. Many of these projects, as well as this pinery, are aimed at landscaping of our city. People of Mariupol express thanks to managers of enterprises forming a company town, Yurii Anatol’evich Zinchenko and Enver Omarevich Tskitishvili”,- emphasized deputy mayor of Mariupol, Mikhail Bogatyrenko.

 “With all our heart we wish all patients a speedy recovery. Also we hope that these conifers will help to recover vital power”, - said Aleksandr Goltvenko, social affairs department head of PJSC “Ilyich Iron and Steel Works of Mariupol”.
