Providing support

GEMO a.s. has not forgotten others. It is actively involved in a number of aspects of social life and assists in a wide range of areas.

Sports

we contribute to the development of talented young athletes and help finance smaller sports clubs in the Olomouc Region. In 2015, we were a proud partner of the FedCup by BNP Paribas 2015 international tennis tournament and we supported our victorious national women's team in the semifinal match in Ostrava and in the final in Prague. We consider our annual support for the ITS Cup international women’s tournament in Olomouc to be our most significant long-term partnership.

 

Culture

we actively support a number of events, including some which are held outside the Olomouc Region.

 

Humanitarian Activities

we have long supported the Haimaom Foundation in Olomouc. The foundation’s mission is to assist sufferers of blood disorders and tumours. We also contribute to selected projects operated by the Olomouc Charity, the Šternberk Charity and the SPOLU citizens’ association in Olomouc every year.

We help those who need it. We contributed to the construction of the Jasněnka Centre for mentally handicapped children in Uničov and to the restoration of the façade of the Sluníčko Kindergarten in Olomouc. We have dedicated funds to the Associated Childcare Facilities in Olomouc for the realisation of a project involving the conversion of the Infant Care Institute in Olomouc into a family facility. The supermodel Veronika Vařeková is the patron of this project.

In 2013, we were actively involved in the Czech Insurance Company’s project through the participation of our employees in the RUNTour race in Olomouc This event has a charitable dimension, as well as sporting goals, . The proceeds from the entry fees were donated to the Children’s Cardio Centre at the Motol Teaching Hospital.

In 2015, we were an important partner at the gala evening for the Prague Pangea Foundation entitled “Return to the Home of Your Heart” which was associated with the awarding of prizes “for efforts aimed at redressing human affairs”.

In 2017, we have supported the project for the construction of the new Jitrocel Locomotion Centre in Olomouc with a financial donation for the purchase of rehabilitation equipment to be used within the framework of the therapy for neurological patients.

We followed up on the financial donation from 2017 and in June 2019 we donated a contribution for special aids and operation of Jitrocel Locomotion Centre in Olomouc. The facility provides handicapped persons professional rehabilitation, reconditioning and massage services and uses premium equipment, special aids and rehabilitation equipment.
