RPG Real Estate as a partner of OKD Foundation
Ostrava - RPG Real Estate group became a partner in a newly formed OKD Foundation. The foundation will be supporting the development of the Moravian-Silesian Region mainly within the area of environment, regional development, cultural life, education and health of citizens. RPG Real Estate will support the foundation by making a contribution worth 2 million CZK this year.
With regard to the extent of our portfolio in the Moravian-Silesian Region we have a great interest in participating in the development of the whole region. That is why we decided to participate in setting up the OKD Foundation together with our affiliated company OKD, a.s. Petr Skrla, the managing director of RPG Real Estate explains the reasons for joining the OKD Foundation: “We are fully identified with the mission of the Foundation to support significantly the beneficiary projects in the region.”
The support of health care, cultural life, education, regional development and environmentalism and also the support of projects for fundraising from the European Union are the principal pillars of the OKD Foundation. According to Petr Skrla, these are exactly the aspects directly connected to the improvement in the quality of life in the region that RPG Real Estate wants to support. Furthermore, these goals are consistent with the RPG Real Estate group investment program that includes the group's housing fund and efforts to increase the quality of housing as well as RPG Real Estate development plans.
Stanislav Svoboda, who came to RPG Real Estate as a director of company-government relationships in December 2007, will be representing RPG Real Estate as a member of the OKD Foundation managing board. “I'm convinced that besides programs dedicated to the protection of environment we will be able to focus on the area of education and health of citizens, development of services for elderly people and programs for socially disadvantaged fellow citizens. The main reason is that over one hundred thousand lodgers of various age and social status live in our apartments in the Moravian-Silesian Region these days," says Svoboda.
Aside from OKD Foundation the RPG Real Estate group supports also the Saint Barbara Civic Association that helps the orphaned children of miners who perished in the mines.
