MMK Holds Charity Event

UrBC, Magnitogorsk, December 4, 2017. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) Metallurg Charity Fund coordinated Talantika, a special event for children with disabilities, the company Information, PR & Advertising Department reports.

Over thirty families with special-needs children were invited to come to Talantika Jobs Town.

‘Talantika is a leisure club and a play area that looks like a stylized urban space with its own bank, an employment agency, a fire brigade, and an art school. The town has spaces dedicated to jobs in the creative, technical, sports, and service sectors. The children could learn about these during their tour of the play town. All kids were given passports with their new jobs in them. The young visitors were very eager to take part in the games offered: some of them played the police officers and looked for ‘criminals’; some went hiking after learning to get the equipment ready for the trip, make a fire, and put up a tent; young bakers got a chance to make cookies, taste them, and treat their parents to these. Children could also play employees of a beauty parlor, a post office, a rescue team, a farm, and a radio station. Every child had an opportunity to reveal their talents and abilities,’ the department says.

A number of special-needs children who couldn’t take part in the event received baskets of sweets and cinema tickets.

Metallurg currently supports 252 children with disabilities. The fund directed nearly RUR 2.5m to their healthcare, presents, summer camp stays, and cinema tickets in the ten months of 2017.
