“Last month, we established our partnership with the Military Rehabilitation Center and are honored to introduce a new line of support for soldiers recovering from complex wounds and injuries. UAF will help with the construction of a football field on the basis of this and three other rehabilitation centers. In addition, we will organize training for coaches who will work with the patients of the centers, we will hand over the necessary football equipment, and in the future we also plan to organize a tournament in which defenders undergoing treatment in all four institutions will participate. It's the least we can do for our heroes. It is especially nice to receive an award from the military for the football community on Volunteer Day. The UAF and the national team actively support the volunteer mission within the framework of the United24 platform, the creation of which was initiated by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky at one time and which is aimed at collecting funds for the restoration of Ukraine," Vadym Kostyuchenko said after the meeting.
