SIBUR helps rehabilitate children with health limitations in Noyabrsk
17 september 2021
Since 2013, Noyabrsk’s Museum Resource Center in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug has been helping people with disabilities better adapt to living in a society. Thanks to the victory of the My Friend the Museum project in a grant contest of SIBUR's Formula for Good Deeds social investment program, this work was continued in 2021.
As part of the My Friend the Museum project, a club for children with disabilities was set up at the center. The center's range of activities includes several thematic areas: disabled children take part in theatrical performances, study folk arts and crafts, and get transported to other historic eras as part of the Journey Through Time thematic area’s program.
By virtue of participating in the activities of the club, young museum visitors get to develop communication skills and acquire the experience of getting engaged in joint activities, get acquainted with the world around them, learn about interesting forms of art and crafts and, ultimately, become better integrated into society.
We are happy that at our museum we can help people with disabilities to adapt socially and culturally. This project enables our children not to notice their difference from the others. We regularly get positive feedback from the kids’ parents who appreciate the professionalism and great skills of our staff. And it is a special joy to see happy children after their classes, Ilseyar Minibayeva, Head of the Urban History Museum, noted.
On a regular basis, SIBUR has been supporting projects that help special children feel the fullness of their lives, study the world around them and develop their creative potential despite their circumstances, Sergey Vinokhodov, Government Relations Advisor to the General Director at SiburTyumenGaz JSC, commented.
The Formula for Good Deeds, SIBUR's social investment program was launched on February 1, 2016 in all key cities where the company operates. It is being implemented across six focus areas covering all essential social sector domains: urban development, education and science, sports and healthy living, environmental protection, culture, and volunteering.
In 2016-2021, 781 projects in nineteen cities emerged as grant competitions’ winners. The grants’ funds have been used to repair and rebuild social facilities, improve and beautify parks and other public spaces, organize sports and mass-scale cultural events, equip school laboratories, and take other measures to improve the quality of life in the regions where the company operates.
