Klokánek at Sea World
Auto ESA took children from Klokánek to Sea World
One may easily get a false impression in these beautiful spring days, strolling in the afternoon and seeing children gambolling around. The false impression would be that that it is a normal and usual course of events and there is nothing to admire about it. But the world today is not only a place of joy. Unfortunately the current world is also a place of human sorrow and misery. It is all the worse when that misery is suffered by children. Jan Vaněk, manager of the Klokánek facility in Prague – Štěrboholy, has something to say about it: “The children we take care of here at Klokánek mostly come from a background where they had no joy or laughter. As much as we can, we therefore try to compensate for their lacking experience and enable them to live like children in normal families do. Unfortunately, it is a fact that we are largely limited by our financial capacities. That is why we were very pleased by the activity of our long-standing partner, Auto ESA, which came up with the idea to organise a nice afternoon at the Sea World display in the Prague Exhibition Grounds for our kids.”
Auto ESA has not forgotten charity in its business, which is why we are involved in various events as a partner. They have included the “Children to Children” Christmas concert at Prague Castle, help to people affected by floods, and the recent long-term loan of a microbus to the Children’s Home in Pyšely near Prague.
“We are very sensitive to the lives of the children at Klokánek. They are our neighbours, and we have a massive interest in being as good a neighbour to them as possible. We have therefore collaborated with Klokánek for several years, including the long-term loan of a car and organising various leisure events for their children. The trip to Sea World that we did for the kids was a very successful event, I think, which pleased both the young and grown-ups who were involved in it,” says Mgr. Fili Kučera, Marketing Manager at Auto ESA.
The Sea World event involved 20 children, who watched a large shark, turtles and predatory barracudas with keen interest and unpretentious enthusiasm. However, the greatest attraction for them was a small striped fish that had inspired the film Finding Nemo. They spent the longest time beside the tank with “Nemo”. And since they grew quite hungry on the trip, the children were jubilant during their surprise visit to a KFC restaurant, where they enjoyed the unhealthy chips, chicken and full cups of coke like all children of the world do.
Auto ESA is committed to continuing to organise similar events for the Klokánek kids, and is already preparing another one. It’s going to be a surprise ;-).
